The Real Olympics
Although it's easy to dismiss rampant nationalism and crass commercialism as expected byproducts of the modern Olympic Games, the original competitions held in Ancient Greece were also marked by political and financial concerns. This fascinating PBS documentary sets out to demythologize the legendary gathering by comparing and contrasting the Ancient Greek games with modern-day Olympics via archival footage and dramatic reenactments.
