Moses the Lawgiver

1975, TV Show

Drawn from the book of Exodus, this miniseries recounts the life of the Hebrew leader who received the Ten Commandments from God and delivered his people from Egyptian bondage in the 13th century B.C. Unlike DeMille's Hollywood versions of the story, the emphasis here is less on spectacle than on often harsh realism. In 1976, a reedited version of the six-hour Italian-British coproduction (coauthored by Anthony Burgess) was released theatrically as `Moses.'
