Ancients Behaving Badly

Show Summary

Ancients Behaving Badly is a historical documentary TV series developed by the History Channel that researches and devotes its time to shedding light on some of the more famous figures in history and their infamous legacies. Tom McCamus narrates the folklore and history of the world's more interesting leaders, including the likes of Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Caligula, Attila the Hun, Cleopatra, and Julius Caesar. History paints them as the more brutal of the leaders with a few side notes of craziness. With the help of historical documents, the most recent discoveries, forensic tests, and the analysis of the very nature of the leaders' jobs, Ancients Behaving Badly shares why they gained those reputations. Why exactly was Attila the Hun known as both a savior and the Scourge of God? Had Cleopatra really delivered herself to Julius Caesar wrapped in a rug? Was Caligula as insane as his contemporary historians reported him to be? From how they took to power to what they did while in power, which ranged from bloodthirsty wars to orgies, watch and decide if these power heads live up to their reputation.moreless
