A history with modern consequences and serious lessons, but still great fun.

Started watching (and might finish too), but unimpressive lazy of him to implicate the Apollo missions as being in the same league as tabloid-driven fake news. (c. 4 mins)

He is a satirist and said about Private Eye that some content complainants clearly can't tell the difference between an expose and a joke.

Journalism's capacity for technology and engineering is famously low, must be his style though - I know him for HIGNFY but never picked up a copy of Private Eye.

Thought it was delivered well and lightheartedly but with an important message.

As posted above, I think this may have been a joke with the intended butt being believers in conspiracy theories

He annoys me on HIGNFY so I don't watch it, but he's a good and entertaining historian / documentary producer imho, and his previous efforts have also been worth watching.

Haven't bought Private Eye since they stopped running the Cloggies.
