I couldnt wait to hear that slinky music again after all these years. It created the feeling of the whole series. I only wish we could get the British version; much racier.....thank you. Its a nasty joy.

Wonderfully done. I can see where Game of Thrones came from. After watching this review of history, we also watched The Last Days of Jesus and how his life intersected with the evens in the history portrayed here.

Who could forget that sinuous theme music? Starting the DVD took us back to the original immediately. Production values faithfully rendered here -- good restoration of both sound and video. A wonderful cast, of course -- all those budding BBC stars! And I can finally throw out my self-recorded VHS tapes from 50 years ago. Thank you, PBS!

Not what I remember
Review by james on 06/19/22 review stating Not what I remember
I remember viewing the series originally on PBS when it ran in the 70s and I believe there are cuts in this edition from the original broadcast, which I am not happy about. I know there were controversial scenes that were edited for the American market but I would have preferred the version which ran on the BBC in the UK. Film quality is OK, but hoping for better digitization.

I saw the series when it originally aired in the early 90s. This purchase was a gift for my sister and brother-in-law. They were delighted to have received it, and I have no doubt they will enjoy the viewing.
