Banned From the Bible I: Full Length Documentary (1hr 29min)

A history of the Gnostic and Apocryphal texts. This documentary gives a fairly comprehensive explanation of how and why some texts were excluded from the bible and some were not. Not strictly related to atheism, but interesting none-the-less.

The full video is embedded here:

If you are into this sort of thing, I also recommend Bart Erhman's book Misquoting Jesus.
