Has any one tried BBC Maestro classes?
They cover things that are appropriate to the BBC, eg writing, cooking, music, wine appreciation etc, with very big names delivering them (eg Billy Connolly does the comedy one and Marco Pierre White one of the cookery ones. You can buy one course and keep it to watch forever, or subscribe for a year and access everything for that year, then renewing or losing the access.
I haven't tried them, and wondered what they were like. The classes seem very short - the one I looked at said there were 25 classes which added up to 5.5 hours, and I wondered how much depth they go into - most online classes I've done are 2 hours each. There is also no indication of the level, and no information about whether they assume any prior knowledge, which is also a bit worrying.
Can anyone speak from experience of them, please?
