Exquisite Byzantium of the Palladium
I purchased this 2015 DVD Tale of Three Cities because I watched it on SBS and thought it was just excellent. Simon Montefiore offers a highly accessible and interesting set of comments on a fascinating and once great Christian city which unfortunately sat at two crucial and ultimately fatal crossroads: the one physical, and the other metaphysical. This DVD shows us the last death throws of a once great matriarchal survival finally raped and deserted, and left to the mercy of the merciless, ruthless Turks. It is truly a great documentary, and instills an uneasy feeling that to this day, unquiet ghosts frequent Byzantium.
