Excellent and informative PBS series (Guess that it was originally shown in three, one-hour shows). Fabulous for history and culture buffs.
Very well done and very interesting. A delight to watch and we learned so much.
A Spartan starts a war with an Athenian. A bunch of innocent people die to make a great empire. Of course, more deaths are needed cos' more land is needed cos' more power hungry egos must expand further. This is a documentary, for the most part, about one lousy war after another. Humans are so preposterously self-congratulatory they have the hubris to call the Greeks the crucible of 'civilization.' Aborigines, Native Americans and Eskimos are a helluva lot more civilized. Hell, busy beavers are more civilized and constructive than most human beings.
This is so great - I'm thinking of purchasing from PBS. It is in a series called EMPIRES and it really brings history alive.
This is quite an interesting and well presented account of Ancient Greece. It mostly focuses on Athens, and specifically with individuals who significantly contributed to that city, and to broader Greek culture, such as Pericles and Socrates.
