I was amused to see a brief review of the whole A History of Christianity series which said MacCulloch didn't betray his biases - because I thought that one thing that came through clearly in this programme was his bias towards Protestantism & away from the Roman Catholic Church ;) Not in a way that got in the way of presenting the factual data, but nonetheless I thought it obvious.
Second programme of the evening was the first part of the nature programme about the Great Rift in Africa - J spotted a repeat of it the other day so recorded it as we'd missed it before. This one was about fire, and really looked at the areas around the still active volcanoes & the way the landscape has been shaped by the volcanoes in the area. Lots of good footage of the animals/plants of the region. so fun to watch. But as with the other two programmes in the series where it fell down was the maps that theoretically showed us where things were - no names of places not even those talked about in the commentary and the view was narrow enough that you couldn't see enough surrounding the region to orient yourself that way either. We'd also managed to catch the repeat with sign-language interpretation, which was a bit distracting.
