The Jews - A People's History (short version)

The six part documentary "The Jews - A People's History" is an expedition into 4000 years of Jewish history, starting with the origins of the Jews as an independent ethnic group in the Middle East and taking us through many countries and across continents right up to the present day. The series researches the roots of the Jewish people and seeks to discover how the monotheistic faith came about, providing the foundation for the other major monotheistic world religions. We look for clues about Judaism at the archaeological excavation sites and view the centers of the culture and the written "evidence" of the Jewish Diaspora.
