Product Description:

In contrast to the elegant, peaceful ceremonies of today, the first Olympic games held in ancient Greece were often brutal competitions marked by blood and violence. The History Channel's 3-part documentary THE FIRST OLYMPICS: BLOOD, HONOR, AND GLORY chronicles the history of the ancient sporting events, from boxing to wrestling and a particularly savage form of unrestrained fighting known as Pankration. Includes the programs THE FIRST OLYMPICS, BLOOD AND HONOR AT THE FIRST OLYMPICS, and THE GREEK GODS.
