Rate this:
The Olympic Games of Ancient Greece were held every four years and without interruption for nearly twelve centuries. The Games were almost 800 years old when Jesus Christ was born, and continued for four centuries after his death. Abandoned and long forgotten, they would return in our modern age to inspire the world's most prestigious amateur sporting event. This program combines lavish reconstructions of the ancient Greek Games with dramatic highlights from the Modern Games to reveal the extraordinary contrasts and unexpected connections between the greatest sporting events of their age.
