Ancient Greece: The Greatest Show on Earth, or history through theater.

Or, three wonderful hours spent not thinking about the 2016 presidential race. Democracy through the prism of theater? Performance art, perhaps.

I highly recommend this series.

Ancient Greece: The Greatest Show on Earth

Classicist Dr. Michael Scott presents a three-part series looking at the power, influence and history of Ancient Greece, particularly Athens, through the prism of one of its most important cultural spaces - the theatre.

It comes in three parts.
