Goofs

The final episode states that Suleiman died in 1561. Since he ordered what is now known as the (Great) Siege of Malta in 1565, this is clearly wrong. His generally accepted date of death is 1566. See more »

Beautiful photography but weak on history
10 August 2002 | by wfowensSee all my reviews

The photography is so good. It's too bad they didn't hire a historian to put the development of the progress of Islam in a more understanding theme. It jumps around so much that it distracts from the presentation. Nonetheless, it is a documentary one would want to see more than once.
