    I forgot to add in relation to Bavaria, that Donald Trump's grandfather, Friedrich, was originally from Bavaria, and of course, liddle Adolph, got his start in Bavaria (Munich) albeit he sprouted up in Austria. There also seems to be some contention over the name Drumpf versus Trump as being the original, or perhaps this is resolved by finding the correct point in time. Bavarian documents in one production show the name Trump for Friedrich?

    Loren, would you mind editing the title of this thread to correct the spelling of the bard's name and correcting 'typology'?

    I don't think Loren has the tools to change the thread title, but I do.

    The above is episode 1 of a 5-part series from 2012. Review from Newsweek:

    The British, so the cliché goes, are a repressed lot. Faced with an awkward subject, they avoid it, change the subject, make tea. Nowhere is this more so than with the topic of the British Empire. The subject of fascination, hatred, and admiration throughout the world, the history of the empire is largely avoided in Britain itself: a bloody, embarrassing episode everyone would rather forget.....

    Television plays a curiously vital role in Britain. In a deeply private and, yes, somewhat repressed culture, TV is the way Britons bond and deal with things. Some cultures stay up all night talking and drinking to deal with their problems, others turn to the church—the British switch on the TV. On the airwaves at least, Britannia still rules.
