Ancient Greece: The Greatest Show on Earth

Available on Pluto TV, MagellanTV Documentaries
Presented by classicist Dr. Michael Scott, this series examines Athens' extraordinary theater career. As Athens played its life out on the Mediterranean stage, the Athenians were regularly sitting down to watch tragedies and comedies in their theaters, but rather than providing pure 'entertainment', 'distraction', or 'diversion' from reality, they were sharply focused on the events of their time.
