Alastair Cooke presents a 3 part mini-series on ancient Greek art and its influence through history. The first episode examines the advancement in art during the heroic age of Greek civilization. The second episode looks at the classical age as Greek art advances to its pinnacle. The third episode sees the influence of the Greeks in later civilizations from the Romans to the Renaissance, Wedgewood, Napoleon, and even the Nazis.

Alastair pontificates on the sculptures a lot. It would be more compelling if it could be incorporated better into world history. It's fine as an art appreciation course. It hints at an interesting idea of art as part of history. It tries to connect the changes. There are some moments of interest like the Egyptian influence and going beyond it. Certainly, one gets a sense of passion from Alastair. It's nice to see what he sees. I'm not sure it's as informative as it could have been. It could be more focused.
