Summary:
Return to ancient Greece and witness the Bacchanalian excess and raw competition of THE FIRST OLYMPICS. While the gods looked down, brutal contests of boxing, wrestling, chariot racing, and an early form of no-holds-barred fighting called Pankration raged within the bloodied arena.

In honor of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, THE HISTORY CHANNEL proudly presents THE FIRST OLYMPICS--a compilation of three compelling, full-length documentaries that explore the origins and culture behind the world's greatest sporting event.

THE FIRST OLYMPICS--Visit the ruins of ancient Olympia, see the stadium that once hosted the games, and discover the essential role this epic festival played in ancient Greece.

BLOOD AND HONOR AT THE FIRST OLYMPICS--In the name of Zeus and glory, boxers, runners, and charioteers compete in this ultimate challenge of champions. The winners are bathed in olive oil; the losers hope for survival. (Narrated by Leonard Nimoy)

THE GREEK GODS--From Aphrodite to Zeus, these are the myths, rituals, and legacies of history's most storied pantheon.

DVD Features: Top Medal Rankings by Country and Athlete; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection
