Filmed over two years in Greece, Turkey, Syria, Egypt and Iran, this three hour documentary sheds light on the exciting life and achievements of Alexander The Great. Through ancient writings, world renowned historians and archaeologists present the story of one of the most famous figures of all time.
Considered by many to be the most successful military commanders of the ancient world, Alexander The Great’s conquests over the Persian Empire began a new era of Greco-Macedonian rule over non-Greek lands. Although he was driven to conquer, he held a strict policy of treating conquered people with great respect, sometimes allowing them to integrate into his administration and army, in exchange for their undying loyalty. Alexander’s military conquests live on to this day, in the stories passed down from the Greek and non-Greek peoples.
