This review is from: In The Footsteps Of Alexander The Great [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is an excellent video for someone like myself who had little prior knowledge of Alexanders exploits.It certainly is not high brow nor is it boring. Michael Wood is enthusiastic and passionate about his subject. Following Alexanders route makes you realise just how incredible his achievments were. As a travel programme alone it is brilliant add the history as well and you have a real winner.Footage of the severity of the terrain Alexander led his army through in places like the Hindu Kush and Afganistan is amazing. These programmes inspired me to learn more about the Macedonian king and I have since read several books on the subject. A pretty good endorsement for the programme, well done Michael Wood.
