All of Terry Jones' documentaries are good value, but this series
especially. Coming out in the aftermath of 9/11 and Iraq invasion, bits of
it were very pointed and not easy to avoid a comparison between Roman
attitudes to "lesser" cultures, the barbarians, with modern neocolonialism,
which is a large part of his point.
