Greece: Secrets of the Past
Explore the beautiful Greek islands and the roots of the Golden Age of Greece as you follow a team of archaeologists piecing together the puzzles of ancient history and learn how the field of archaeology has progressed.
See how the island of Santorini — possibly home of Atlantis — was formed and how the island's volcanic eruption, one of the biggest explosions in Earth's history, occurred.
Innovative computer graphic imaging (CGI) restores the Parthenon to its original glory, showcasing how the ancient monument once looked. The film also traces some of our modern society's customs: democracy, medicine, athletics and theater as you are transported on a modern-day journey through time and place.
