The Crusades (as relayed to us by Terry Jones)

Has anyone yet seen this documentary series on The Crusades narrated by Terry Jones?

If so, I'd like to hear what you think about it.

I'm not a historian of The Crusades, and I haven't seen this series in many years, but I was enthralled when I did watch it, as it provided a fascinating overview of the topic interspersed with Terry Jones' creativity, lightheartedness*, and reverence for the specific topic, for history in general, and for the desire to communicate complex topics to as wide an audience as possible.

I need to see this series again.

* Seems almost blasphemous to say this about The Crusades.
