Yes I saw it and thought it was a very good program. It gives a good rundown of some of the roots of Western/Christian civilization. The United States could have been an Islamic nation today if it weren't for one battle that took place in France. It also puts into perspective how well off we are these days compared to how the average person lived during that period.

There also was the horror of the Black Death in that every 3rd person was going to die and there was no way to stop it or even know what was causing it.
