Crusades Episode 1: Pilgrims In Arms

First of this 4 parts series in which ex-Monty Python member, Terry Jones, takes us through 200 years (1096 to 1270) of medieval history, explaining the Crusades and the religious conflicts of the era, using re-enactments and reconstructions. Each program is introduced by Roger Mudd. Series premiered June 5, 6, 7, 8, 1995 on the Arts and Entertainment Network. Former Monty Python member Terry Jones hosts this journey along the ancient route of the Crusades from Europe to the near East. Computer animation, “living” paintings, battle recreations and lush illustration bring this bloody, enriching and sometimes comical clash of Christianity and Islam back to life. Consultants were Sir Steven Runciman and Profesor Suheil Zakkar.
