Los Britanicos

A Britanico, somewhere
Tonight at 9pm on Canal 22, my colleague Edgardo introduced the first episode of Los Britanicos, a 7-part dramatised series originally broadcast on BSkyB. An interesting experiment. Instead of putting events on in museums or theatres, or online, we thought we'd try TV. The deal included some UKMX branding and Edgardo setting the scene for each episode. It's heavy on melodrama, some flashy CG and celebs-as-talking-heads (Jessie J, Russell Brand, Frank Lampard and, er, Terry Wogan amongst others), but episode one tells the story well enough. The answer to 'What have the Romans ever done for us?' is Quite a lot actually. 
We've gone for another series too. Shakespeare y Nosotros follows straight afterwards in April.
