Terry Jones Documentary on Medieval History



In this episode Terry Jones of Monty Python fame investigates the lives of three English kings, after which he concludes that history isn't simply the story of what happened in the past. It's often what the people who wrote it want posterity to think. In the case of the medieval kings, the Baron's or the Church's version of history is often the one that endures. I would like to see someone produce a show like this on American history.
