Don't know if this is more fitting here or in the Open Dhamma. May the mods move it as they please. Thanks.
A nice documentary series I stumbled across recently. Bhante Anandajoti tells about the history of early Buddhism in a nice storytelling way from the Buddha's enlightenment up until 100 AD or something, with political maps, historical and scriptural anecdotes all nicely put together.
The series consits of four parts:
The Early Life of the Buddha
The Last Year of the Buddha's Life
Asoka and the Missions
The Spread of Buddhist civilization through Asia
Those who are ashamed of what they should be ashamed of, and are not ashamed of what they should not be ashamed of -- upholding true views, they do not go to states of woe.
