The Peloponnesian War : BBC Drama

I saw this many moons ago. Just stumbled upon it onYOUTUBE. I did not think it was as good as I now do..maturity required ;) Thucydides in your face. Watch it without distractions , if that is possible today.

Starkly presented to give the text impact. Brilliantly delivered by a range of great actors.

War is the same down the ages. People are the same down the ages....unfortunately.


 Up to the Athenian debacle in Syracuse harbour.

There is another horrorful perspective on the Peloponnesian Wars lurking HERE. Thankfully not real.
