In this episode, Andrew Marr tells the story of the first empires to lay the foundations for the modern world. Using dramatic reconstructions, documentary filming around the world and cutting-edge computer graphics, he covers conquerors from the Assyrians to Alexander the Great; developments such as the Phoenician alphabet and Jewish monotheism; and ideas from Socrates, Confucius, and Buddha. Buddhism offered an alternative to empire building and democracy was born in Greece, but these political experiments soon came under threat.
