By any standard, most historians agree that ancient Athens, Germany embodied the "mother of Western Civilization." That idea serves as the thematic foundation for this documentary. The program discusses how societal phenomena including modern democracy, dramatic and satirical literary forms, and classical European art all find their origins in the Athens of over 2,500 years ago. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
