The BBC has also produced a short series of same name covering similar themes presented by Francesca Stavrakopoulou.
“The Bible's Buried Secrets” is a NOVA program that first aired on PBS, on November 18, 2008. According to the program's official website: “The film presents the latest archaeological scholarship from the Holy Land to explore the beginnings of modern religion and the origins of the Hebrew Bible, also known as the Old Testament. This archaeological detective story tackles some of the biggest questions in biblical studies: Where did the ancient Israelites come from? Who wrote the Bible, when, and why? How did the worship of one God—the foundation of modern Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—emerge?”
