Dr. Michael Scott, HOST (as seen on NOVA, History Channel, PBS, BBC, National Geographic Channel, etc).

"Let us go back 2,500 years to the wars between ancient Greece (West) and Persia (East). The Greco-Persian Wars 2,500 years ago were a clash between two people, two cultures, two systems of government and two continents. The first clash between East and West. A clash that has, sadly, continued all the way to today."  

Great TV companion to the hit movie "300".

Adapted from the 8-episode epic documentary drama The First War for Western Civilization

1) Ancient Greece: The Forgotten Son
2) Battle of Marathon Triumph, His Fall and Redemption
3) The 300 Die; Ancient Greeks in Peril
4) Salamis and Plataea Triumphs, Another Fall and His Legacy

He was the only Greek to fight for 40 years against the Persians at Marathon with Miltiades (against Persia's King Darius), at Thermopylae with Leonidas and the 300 Spartans (against Persia's King Xerxes), at Salamis with Themistocles (against Persia's King Xerxes) and at Plataea leading the battle against the Persians finally driving the them out of Greece. He was THE GREAT 'uniter' of Greece 200 years before ALEXANDER and the only General in all history to have personally led his men into battle 30 days after he died! Were it not for his heroism, the Golden Age of Athens would not have occurred and Western Civilization would be vastly different, if not at all.
