Notes on history

The amateur podcast Notes on History which comes out infrequently, has begun a series about American Presidents which looks quite promising. At this opportunity I would like to turn your attention to a much older issue in the series which I found particularly good and originally executed. (feed)

Host Paul Stoetzel took on the challenge of retelling the historic events of 1066, William the Conqueror's taking over of England. In a two-part production he turns the story into a veritable drama, complete with suspense and surprise turns of events and a touch of comedy. In the process he manages to bring clarity in the facts and keep track of the multitude of characters involved including their confusing names (three Harolds to name but a few of those challenges). 1066, part 1 ; 1066 part 2.
