I mentioned this program in passing in another thread, but just wanted to bang the drum for this fine program here as well, in case some hadnt read the other thread unrelated to Vikings. Here is what I wrote about it:
If anybody has but the slightest interest in the Vikings and from whence they came, I heartedly recommend the following BBC production.
Without one of the finest documentaries on the subject, that I have ever seen - and Ive seen a few.
'BLOOD OF THE VIKINGS' trace the origins of the Vikings and amongst other things through blood tests/DNA determine, where they settled in the UK.
Goes without saying, that York plays a not insignificant role in the production.
Again, I simply can not recommend this enough - far above all the generic shows that gets churned out, this rises as a shining beacon.
Enough hyperbole - here it is, nothing less than fantastic must-see-TV:
Okay, so Im biased, as Im from Viking stock, but watch it or we'll come back and rape your goats and kill your women!
WARNING! Once you get immersed in the documentary, you wont be able to stop watching it and you will have to hang on to the end.
