Two brothers accidentally run over and kill an old man. Despite covering their tracks, their lives start to fall apart when neighbors and relatives of the dead man begin to have doubts about the way he died.
Absolutely stunning and entertaining short series of programmes covering great historical people.
In each 30 minute episode Mark manages to deliver a summary of the person's life and work at breakneck speed, put into a modern context by hilarious asides.
What I really like is the loving attention to detail e.g. fake newspaper pages revealing in-jokes etc. These flash on to the screen so quickly that you really need to pause a recording to appreciate them all. Plus more become apparent with repeated viewing.
