Maria Robinson on
A interesting DVD
Phillipa Connelly on
Mostly Interesting, however it has a personal slant that is not necessarily shared by the majority.
Graham. P Taarnby on
I found this very interesting.
There was a lot of things that I had never heard of before.
I found it constructed very well with each relevant part following another in a logical way
Once I started watching it I couldn't turn it off until the end, It really held my interest
Alan Skelton on
Insightful and very interesting history lesson. Very good value and I will watch this again as there is so much in it.
John McCubbery on
Typical fast, reliable, great value service from Fishpond for a DVD I was not able to easily find locally. And we always want to support Fishpond over Amazon so it is doubly satisfying. Thank you Fishpond!

I hesitate to write this because I don't have time to do The Story of the Jews justice, but it is brilliant! Readers and viewers familiar with Schama's scholarly precision and originality will not be surprised by the depth and range of the narrative. Of course it is informed by his family history and his Jewish identity. The production values are excellent, so this DVD is visually as well as culturally rich. Because Schama is somehow able to make complex historical and religious concepts accessible to non-Jewish viewers, and also because he doesn't shirk the hard questions about inter-faith conflict, this would be an excellent starting point for anyone keen to learn about the Jewish people through the ages, from the beginnings to the present.
Dusty Miller on
Beautifully produced this Documentary tells a most intriguing story of one of the worlds most resilient and miss-understood group of people on the planet. Well worth the watch 9.7 out of 10.
