(I thought I'd posted this yesterday, while it was still running, but it seems to have got stuck somewhere.)
Secrets of the Bible - Yesterday channel Tues Oct 20. I don't know whether this channel is available to replay on line.
This is a rubbishy American series with an English voice-over (I beliee the technical term is "Voice of God"
I wouldn't normally have watched this, but when it turned out to be about Noah's Flood...
It got of in an uninteresting manner, admitting deep time and the likely local nature of any Biblical flood. They'd got themselves to the Black Sea and found some shells in sediment implying a sudden inundation. I was about to turn it off at thais point when Bingo! Out comes a conspiracy theory: the KGB raided their room looking for the shells, to scupper any attempt to prove that the Bible is true!
Suffice to say that our heroes successfully tricked the atheists from the KGB and got their precious evidence to the USA. Where they were dated at 7,200 years ago. A time when their would be people to form an ancestral memory.
A further expedotion found some exciting artefacts on the floor of the Black Sea but they turned out to be bits of fishing gear a few hundred years old. Oh dear!
Undaunted, the search continues: this time looking for people displaced by the Fludde and lo! a Necropolis dated shortly after the Black Sea flood, full of complicated gold jewellery, with no evidence of previous civilisation in the area.
Finally, back the good old US of A and the Bible. No doubt that the un-flooded Black Sea was the Garden of Eden. Whence came all the gold. Finally, clutching at straw, they declare that the introduction of farming to Europe was a consequence of the Fludde. That single straw is the only thing approaching a claim that the Fludde was global. I.e., the consequences, not the Fludde, were global.
Probably not worth looking for it on-line.
