History Channel documentary that looks back at the first ever Olympic Games. Held in Athens, Greece, the Olympics could provide victors with incredible status and glory, but the contests were often brutal, bloody and filled with danger.
History Channel documentary exploring the life and reign of the infamous Roman emperor. The name Caligula has become synonymous with the corrupting effects of power and the bloodthirstiness of tyrants. Said to have killed for the sadistic pleasure of it, committed incest and descended to a state of near insanity, Caligula ruled the Roman Empire for only four years before he was assassinated in AD 41.
Collection of documentaries on one of the most reviled figures in history. 'Hitler: A Profile' examines the life of Hitler from his rise to prominence to the suicide that brought the European phase of WWII to an end. 'Hitler in His Own Words' makes use of archive footage and dialogue taken from the writings and speeches of Hitler to provide a fresh perspective on the man. Finally, 'Triumph of the Will' is an official record of the 1934 Nazi rally at Nuremburg directed by Leni Riefenstahl.
It began like the common cold. Then came fever, baseball-sized black swellings on the neck, and coughing up blood. Few infected lived more than two days. In the three years since it first struck in 1437, almost half of Europe's population died within three years. THE PLAGUE visits the rat-infested holds of the ships that brought death and disease, witness the terror that swept through towns, and walks with religious flagellants. Hear the actual words of the victims, taken from diaries and journals. From the Pope s palace to the humble huts of medieval peasants, watch as people live and die in the unforgiving grip of fear and death, and wonder how we would act if such a terrible event happened today.
