The Romantics Eternity BBC documentary

Jess Kerr's insight:

The final installment of the three part BBC series of documentaries, 'The Romantics'. This series is a brilliant insite on the Romantic period itself as well as the Romantic poets and writers (for example, John Keats is featured in this one). Very well made and full of detail, yet easy to watch.

The Romantics really have impacted our lives and will continue to- for eternity.

Enjoy :D
