Paul Merton's Birth of Hollywood
Worth watching, but nowhere near as good as his series on silent film comedians; in fact, the writing is a little cack-handed and the episodes seem to jump about at times in stream of consciousness fashion. I'm also a little uneasy about the recreations. Doesn't the BBC credit its audience with the intelligence to listen?
All three episodes are available to watch for another five days on BBC iPlayer
