This epic five-part series presented by historian Simon Schama explores the story of the Jewish experience from ancient times to the present day. It begins 3,000 years ago with the emergence of a tribal people in a contested land and their extraordinary book, the Hebrew Bible, a chronicle of their stormy relationship with a faceless, formless, jealous God. “A fantastic television series, a sweeping analysis of Jewish history from King David to the founding of the modern Israel.” Sunday Times
"I learnt more about Judaism in a simple hour of Simon Schama's perfect starter to The Story of the Jews than I have in all my years on Earth."
