Here I was, just complaining about the quality of programming on contemporary cable/satellite TV. And, by-and-large, that still holds true. But there are some bright spots. For instance, I just watched episode 1 of Men of Iron, on the Discovery Science Channel, which focused on Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Thomas Telford – two rather “interesting” characters (to say the least). While indeed, it had many of the docudrama trappings of most of today’s historical programming, it was still excellent.
