This series brings to life a pivotal event in world history, the creation of a Greek empire stretching from the Balkans to India. A dramatic and colorful journey across 2,000 years and 16 countries, the four-hour documentary is hosted by British historian Michael Wood. At the heart of this epic story is the enigmatic character of Alexander the great. A portrait emerges of the extraordinary young man who set out at age 21 and conquered most of the known world before he was 30. Using texts of Greek and Roman historians as his guide, Wood searches for the truth behind legends that depict Alexander as both a brilliant visionary and ruthless conqueror. Divided into four parts.
