Every time I see Tony Robinson do one of these documentaries, I still keep expecting to hear him say "I have a cunning plan my Lord!"

Why is the freaking music three tines louder than the narrator?!

If there's one thing that the Mel Gibson movie learned me: it's not only that history is written by the victors, it's being rewritten by Australian actors.

Who doesn't enjoy Tony Robinson's work ?
Everything he's ever done has been excellent from Blackadder to Time Team, and plenty more besides - he's perfect for this format.

The overly graphic explanations of "drawn and quartered" at the end were unnecessary. We know what it was. Do we need the gleeful descriptions?

I remember having to watch Braveheart in history class. We had to decide how accurate each scene was to history and present it to the class. One of the groups titled their presentation "The Battle of Stirling's Invisible Bridge" because in the film there was no bridge and they fought in a field.

I have watched the movie " Brave Heart " years ago. That reminded me of my own country's history under China's occupation .

I want so much to watch this but the background music is too loud.

I can hardly hear what he's saying for the loud music. It doesn't need any music.

Im an englishman and a want to say William Wallace thoroughly deserves his heroic place in world history not just Scottish history, it's important to understand the time in which historical figures lived to truly understand them, their actions may seem brutal but human warfare has never been clean, ive studied wallace for 20 years and he is the man who never bowed to english sovereignty which is why hes easily one of the most celebrated national heroes ever with a 700 year legacy and statues world wide to his memory

background music is too loud, making the speech almost inaudible.

Long story short: the Scots were betrayed by their own nobles. The Scots (and Irish) were their own worst enemy when it came to fighting the English.

Hey, I don’t know if it’s just me, but the sounds and music are covering up the narrator a little bit. Other than that, good video!

I get you need ads, but why are they every 5 minutes, and in the middle of the narration?

3:41 My hometown on the right there, can’t believe baldrick was up here and missed the chance to meet him

Thank god, yet another program presented by baldrick. We can’t get enough of him. Until this minor actor is promoted to prime minister I will not be happy.

derp. Fiction. Robert the Bruce was a hero, and nothing like the coward portrayed in the braveheart movie.

Pointless to argue who was the baddest dude in all of this. They were all seriously sick farkers, English and Scots when judged by present days standards. And that is how it was back in the day!

And then about 800 years later, the Scottish people voted against independence hahahaha
