Alexandria: The Greatest City
2010
This documentary delves into the history of Alexandria, Egypt, revealing the story of a city that became the world's first global center of culture.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

This BBC documentary is fairly shallow. If you don't know who Alexander the Great is, this is the History 101 course for you. But it makes good use of feature-film footage to illustrate the time period, and the narrator's poetic descriptions of Alexandria's importance and tragedy are inspiring, especially in the conclusion.
