Monty Python star Terry Jones presents this award-winning documentary series, featuring Ancient Inventions, The Surprising History of Sex & Love and The Hidden Histories of Egypt and Rome.

Ancient Inventions
A fresh and highly original view of some of the ancient world’s most remarkable inventions. History enthusiast Terry Jones takes us on an unconventional,  myth-busting journey revealing the unexpected, whilst discovering that the ancient world was every bit as inventive as our own.

Other titles in the series:

THE SURPRISING HISTORY OF SEX & LOVE
Exploring the radical change in social and religious attitudes towards sex, this award-winning documentary takes a look throughout history and traces the shift in social attitudes and practices. Terry traces an unexpected route of how sex got from strict social repression to the full-frontal glossies of today.

Directed by Phil Grabsky
