Well produced documentary about the rise and fall of Greek civilization.
19 March 2000 | by (Rochester, NY) – See all my reviews

Another well put together PBS documentary. And it certainly doesn't hurt to have Liam Neeson narrate. I certainly learned more in this documentary about the rise and fall of Greek civilization than I recall from school.
