Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 3
AIRED:
Michael Wood makes his way through war-torn Afghanistan on a dramatic march with pack horses over the Hindu Kush Mountains. At Kabul, Michael finds himself in the middle of a siege of the city by the fundamentalist Taliban. Hiring horses for the camera equipment and armed guards to ward off ambushes, he sets off to follow Alexander's trail, 20,000ft up in the Hindu Kush Mountains, to make it through the Khawak Pass and Central Asia. On the other side, the historical traveler stays with a local warlord before pushing on by jeep across the Oxus river into former Soviet Central Asia. The journey finally leads to the city of Khodjent. Here, Michael hears of Alexander's increasingly unstable personality. At a drunken banquet in Samarkand, the conqueror murdered one of his closest associates, fought on through the silk route, and then captured and fell in love with the beautiful teenager Roxan.moreless
