I would not tend to trust History Channel documentaries as scholarly sources, though.  Yes, they're probably better than some sources, but in the end you have to remember that they are ultimately made to entertain, not to convey information accurately and impartially.

True. I have seen a couple that were rather impressive though. At any rate, I think they are a nice place to start, sort of a least that is how I react to documentaries on subjects I don't have a lot of knowledge on, they make me want to research certain points, but you are right, not everyone will want to do that.

Sometimes historical documentaries can be "bare bones" info too, that is, they don't overload on details that might not be that crucial to a "newbie" or someone with a light interest in a subject.

Not everyone is that geek shouting at the screen about the inaccuracies  (who me? - never!  Grin)
