Not everyone learns the same way. Some folks learn better through visuals than through printed material and some folks learn better through printed material than through visuals. And for some it's a combination of the two.

That said this question seems less about actual learning and more about entertainment in regards to history. Or it seems have become such. In that instance I have to say that any entertainment that can get people to want to go and look up the actual history behind that entertainment is something worth having. I don't expect everyone that reads a fiction book, or goes to see a movie, or even watches TV is going to want to then go and look things up. But there are going to be those with some interest in what they read or saw who'll want to learn more about it. That is where the educational value of such entertainment may lie in my opinion.
