Single DVD

In this timely and fascinating film, historian Bettany Hughes goes in search of the real truth about democratic Athens, 2500 years ago. It has been revered as the birthplace of philosophy, art, science and the greatest political idea of all time; democracy. It has been portrayed as a golden age, almost too good to be true - and maybe it was. Now Bettany Hughes throws out the stereotypes and digs deeper to find out what democracy really meant.

Comments about PBS Athens: The Dawn of Democracy DVD:

I show segments of this documentary in my 9th grade world history class. We use it to discuss the origins of Athenian democracy and its development after the Persian Wars. Students find the technology developed by the Athenians to facilitate political participation especially interesting.

Comments about PBS Athens: The Dawn of Democracy DVD:

"Good stuff"? Stuff? I give it four stars without the slang.

The video is better history than our children are taught in school. Please consider offering it to teachers at a special, very low price. (I am not a teacher, just someone concerned about America's rising level of ignorance.)
