The Story of the Jews with Simon Schama
Series Description: This series, written and hosted by noted historian and scholar Simon Schama, offers a comprehensive story of the Jewish experience from ancient times to the present day. It is an epic odyssey and Schama's personal journey of discovery into a world that has been calling him throughout his working life. Though the series will feature a wide variety of interviewees ranging from academics (Rabbi Allen Nadler; professors Elisheva Carlebach, Aron Rodrigue, Robert Wistrich and Henry Louis Gates, Jr.) to writers, politicians, artists and musicians (Emmanuel Ax and Itzhak Perlman), Schama is the "face" of the series.
