Review of Civilisations (2018)

Moving picture, 8 hours

Seen in 2019.

I missed the second-to-last episode (8 out of 9) due to an unusual licensing arrangement on SVT Play.

Simon Schama, Mary Beard and David Olusoga chart the course of art around the world, from prehistory up to the minute.

It’s got a bit of the usual overinterpretation, but for such a short and breezy overview it’s amazingly good.
