Perhaps I am being unfair, but having watched last night the first episode of this TV series I am deeply disappointed. Doubtless this is because I recently read Howard Fast's history of the Jews - a far more searching and rewarding account of the early days, at the very least. True, Schama's show is crammed full of visual delights, but I was left feeling I had feasted on a very thin soup containing the occasional bit of meat. I hope subsequent episodes will enthuse me.
