Ancient Olympics

A pivotal moment in Olympic history - a time when the purity of the great Olympic ideal is slowly being tainted.

We reenact chariot racing, running, jumping, discus, javelin and  man-to-man combat. With the help of sports historians and great athletes such as heavyweight boxer George Chuvalo and Olympic sprint medalist Donovan Bailey, viewers travel back to a very different world. Combining computer-generated imagery and vivid re-enactments, Ancient Olympics brings the legendary Hellenistic spectacle to life. Shot in-studio with the athletes and green screen for extensive CGI insertions.

(1-hour HD for CBC/SRC, History Channel, ZDF, ARTE, RTI Mediaset, NHK.)
