Julius Caesar Ancients Behaving Badly: Disc 1 Episode 3
No one's flashing their goodies in this tongue-in-cheek History Channel series, which sheds light on the "bad" behavior of famed historical figures like Attila the Hun, Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great. With the aid of CGI animation, on-location reenactments and expert interviews, the series also explores the lives of Cleopatra, Caligula, Hannibal and Nero, and paints a portrait of their leadership styles.
Hero of Rome, founder of the empire and one of history’s greatest generals, that's the Caesar we all know. But this film reveals that his success was built on more than just military genius. Genocide, sexual conquests and political spin orchestrated by the man himself underscored much of his life. Psychiatric evaluation reveals a man so driven to succeed that he would kill to get there
