Michael Wood's Story of England, Series 1

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


In a groundbreaking series, historian Michael Wood tells the story of one place throughout the whole of English history. That place is Kibworth in Leicestershire in the heart of England - a village that lived through the Black Death, the Civil War and the Industrial Revolution and was even bombed in World War Two. It's ultimately the story of people and their land over time, as we lay bare a history filled with fascinating real-life characters, including Tudor teachers, highwaymen, Suffragettes and First World War soldiers.

History of England

A touch parochial for those outside England, but so what? Michael Wood's usual left-of -field insight and enthusiasm are in full play here. Annoying music, tho.

Excellent documentary

Michael Wood's documentary looks at the history of England through the eyes of the village Kibworth in Leicestershire. If you are a fan of Wood, you will know exactly what to expect. What could be a fairly boring subject is brought to life through his enthusiasm and the excellent production standards. Having seen this now, I realize the story is much better told by concentrating on one place which has an incredible amount of primary source evidence about its past.


I want to like this, I really do. But it's really boring. I know the presenter is held in high regard but I find him rather dull. Maybe I'm not in the right frame of mind but I just can't get engaged with this. This should be more interesting than it is. It feels like homework.
