Here are some of the best documentaries I’ve seen on ancient Greece. All of them appeared on the BBC but are sadly & inexplicably not available to buy as DVDs. So, we have to make do with YouTube & hope they don’t get taken down. Enjoy while you can, they are wonderful!
Documentaries on this rather long page:
- BBC Delphi: The Bellybutton of the Ancient World by Dr Michael Scott
BBC Who Were the Greeks? by Dr Michael Scott (2 parts)– sadly, no longer available
- BBC Ancient Greece: The Greatest Show on Earth by Dr Michael Scott (3-part documentary on ancient Greek theatre!)
- BBC Athens – The Truth About Democracy by Bettany Hughes
