The Empire of Spirit

Michael Wood, tactful British historian, presents us with a brief look at the history of India from his 1992 documentary series "Legacy: A Search for the Origins of Civilization." Bear in mind he does use the Aryan invasion theory heavily. He mentions the Soviet Union (I remember that; people thought it would last forever). This is not as good as his 2007 series "The Story of India," but it was made a lot earlier, so that can account for this episode being less refined. Runs approximately one hour in six videos. The sound quality is not that great as well.
