Summary
Includes: The Triumph of Alexander the Great and The Death of Socrates.
The Triumph of Alexander the Great 324 B.C. When his Macedonian troops revolt, Alexander the Great (Michael Higgins) must decide what course of action is necessary. He analyzes and debates the situation with his council of generals and his soldiers to determine if he should crush the rebellion or yield to the mutiny. Also starring E.G. Marshall, James Broderick and John Marley. The Death of Socrates 399 B.C. Just hours before he is to be executed for refusing to recognize the Gods, Socrates (Barry Jones) explains to his friends why he must choose death over life. His friends desperately try to convince him otherwise but he valiantly rationalizes that his search for truth would be invalidated should he admit wrongdoing rather than meet his fate. Also starring E.G. Marshall, John Cassavetes and Robert Culp.
