The Normans

Just watched this rather excellent three parter, presented by Robert Bartlett.

Very informative and goes through the legacy clearly - very interesting (if you like this kind of thing).
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.
