Product Description:

Although it's tempting to dismiss nationalism and commercialism as byproducts of the modern Olympics, the original competitions held in ancient Greece were also marred by their own era's political and financial interests. PBS' fascinating documentary THE REAL OLYMPICS sets out to demythologize the legendary sporting event by comparing and contrasting the ancient Greek games with their modern-day counterpart through archival footage and dramatic reenactments.
