Filmed on location in England and using quotes from letters and other documents of Pilgrim leaders, this video is rich in detail and information. Its major drawback--and one that may affect its effectiveness with its intended student audience -- is that it's as dull as dillweed, primarily due to a somniferous narration.

Now, that's telling them with panache and vocabulary! I've never heard the phrase "dull as dillweed" before, but it is now my favorite in that category.
