Buddhism is so multi-faceted and complex that it's difficult to get a good video on it. This one succeeds! The reviewer, Britisher Bettany Hughes, visits 7 famous Buddhist sites and ties them in with basic Buddhis beliefs. She is a good speaker, and the program is well planned. She has also chosen sites that are generally quite spectacular and which will hold the viewer's attention. I find the architecture of some of the Buddhist temples particularly superb; I am not good at art, and I have the utmost admiration for those who are--and some of the buildings in this video will blow most viewers' minds; I know they did mine! Beautifully filmed, well paced, and strongly recommended.
