Not Ken Burns, but very watchable

Caught this on PBS the other night and was compelled to watch the entire series straight through. Not mesmorizing like "The Civil War" but enjoyable and informative. The series didn't flinch from histroical details that keep the Christian Right up at night, nor did it revel in sensationalism for Jerry Springer Ratings.

Kudos to host Bettany Hughes, who is thuroughly knowledgeable on the subject, projects great intellegence, and is, (how shall I put this?) eminently photogenic.
