Power, Violence, Sex and Nara - History of Japan Cameron Foster
An episode entitled Power, Violence, Sex and Nara sounds interesting enough, and it certainly is. Though in the event although there is plenty of sex and enough violence to be getting on with, there is much more fascinating stuff about Buddhism and explains why the Japanese don't trust women to be emperors.
I have already been enthusiastic about the first two episodes, but Cameron really gets into his stride with this one.
