    It sounds like the narrator says something different from 'was held'....

    "A series" Почему "а" со словом во множественном числе?

    Ну например The family are gathering together at the table.

    Family -- единственное число, но подразумевает множество составляющих в данном случае, поэтому "are"

    Он were говорит, я уверен.
    Хотя еще раз послушал, может быть и was...

    Ну ладно!
    А вообще так можно сказать: a series were...?

    C family-то я знаю. Это собирательное существительное. Может и series тоже, но дело в том, что там стоит a.
    A family were... a team were.... a government were

    The family were - это, насколько я знаю, присуще британцам в большей степени, чем американцам.
