Things start badly for Steve Allen when Sir Bertrand Russell - the 20th-century philosopher - objects to even the format of the show. Apparently, he feels it will give the 4th-century bishop, St. Augustine of Hippo, a forum to expound his faith. Thomas Jefferson mediates, but is little interested in their religious quarrels. For her part, Empress Theodora of the Byzantine Empire tells the story of her rise from the lowest classes to marry Emperor Justinian. It's a rollicking discussion, furthered by the interpretations of Ivor Francis (Augustine), Salome Jens (Theodora), Shepperd Strudwick (Jefferson), and John Hoyt (Russell). Allen provides the glue, the grace, and the creative genius to make the seventh volume of this award-winning PBS television series a fantastic examination of historic issues and stimulating conversation.
