Have enjoyed it. The presenter a little condescending at times but he does make it interesting. Lots of fascinating social history. We went to Liverpool last year for a short break and the importance of the docks was clear. Would recommend the maritime and slave museum.
On a similar theme, read an excellent book by Richard Benson on similar lines about a family who lived in the South Yorkshire coalfield: Amazon product
Thoroughly recommend that and another one he did about a farming family.
