The History of the Devil

This is an oh-so-cheesy, always interesting, old-fashioned Discovery Channel style program about the history of Satan, who was apparently invented by Zoroaster and later imported into monotheism.

It is the perfect sort of entertainment to watch on a drunken Sunday afternoon. I was certain that the narrator was Michael York, but apparently it is a very good Michael York impersonator.

It is also the history of the good versus evil, Manichean worldview that has tormented humankind since its invention.
