On November 6-7, 2005, the History Channel will present The Crusades: Crescent and the Cross, a "clear-eyed look at the first three crusades, the battle between the Crescent and the Cross, which still shapes the Middle East and relations between the two great religions in our present day world."

The program will be presented at 9:00 p.m. (EST). The website includes an interesting "flash" animated introduction as well as a sweepstakes and an interactive timeline.
