Trails and Tales
21 August 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Unlike Palin's travels which are mostly about the now, this is all about the journey of a young godlike king of some 2500 years ago, for whom his world was not big enough. Like Palin's travels though, Michael Wood takes you through some of the most spectacular landscapes and oldest cities and societies on this planet weaving a tale of conquest, hardship, friendship and visions of greatness (on the part of Alexander). Great imagery and gripping story telling make this one to watch for anyone who is interested in (ancient) history and one of it's greatest men. Go watch it: it made me want to follow his trail myself...
