Summary
In this episode, Andrew Marr tells the story of the first empires to lay the foundations for the modern world. Using dramatic reconstructions, documentary filming around the world and cutting-edge computer graphics, he covers conquerors from the Assyrians to Alexander the Great; developments such as the Phoenician alphabet and Jewish monotheism; and ideas from Socrates, Confucius, and Buddha. Buddhism offered an alternative to empire building and democracy was born in Greece, but these political experiments soon came under threat.
