BLOOD, HONOR, AND GLORY
The Ultimate Challenge of Champions
Features interviews with leading scholars, archeologists and historians. Three complete programs bring the culture and competition of ancient Greece to life. Visit the site of the very first Olympic Games. Head to ancient Greece to witness the Bacchanalian excess and raw competition of THE FIRST OLYMPICS. While the gods looked down, brutal contests of boxing, wrestling, chariot racing and an early form of no-holds-barred fighting raged within the bloodied arena. In honor of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, THE HISTORY CHANNEL PRESENTS: THE FIRST OLYMPICS--three compelling documentaries that chronicle the origins and culture behind the world's greatest sporting event.
