Description

First of two programmes in which Boris Johnson travels around the Mediterranean to investigate the centuries of antagonism between Christianity and Islam, visiting sites where the two faiths have clashed. Examining 1,400 years of history, he learns how Arabs conquered half the former Roman empire in just 80 years, precipitating the Crusades - a conflict some commentators say continues to this day
