I listen to documentaries at work. You guys are going to get a lot of these. I really enjoyed this and Bettany Hughes comes highly recommended by some of my friends who are Art Historians.

[video=youtube;ofGExNe6OFM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofGExNe6OFM[/video]


Talking Points;

1. Role of Priestesses in Ancient Greece
2. Role of Priestesses in Ancient Rome
3. Female Clergy in Early Christianity
4. The metamorphisis of feminine involvement within the church during and post St. Augustine
5. The continuing debate

Hope you guys get a good listen at least.

She also did decent documentaries on the Minoans, Myceneans, Spartans, Athenians, and the Library of Alexandria.

I think she also attended a Hindu festival in one of those episodes.

Thanks for this, must have missed it when it was on the TV. Will try to watch it when I have time.

Also, her book about Helen is really good. I would recommend it. (I haven't read all of it yet, only about a third, but I went to a talk she did about Helen and based on that talk then the rest of the book is going to be as good as the beginning. )
