A quick primer on accomplishments of the Medici

Quick as in an hour.  I found this BBC documentary very enjoyable and informative and a good reminder of how the Renaissance developed under Medici patronage.  (I found the tie-ins to art being the hot commodity it is in the modern world less interesting/persuasive).  A great, quick visual trip to see the world created by the Medici clan.
