    The Last Stand of the 300
    This spectacular two hour documentary tells the amazing true story of the 300 Spartan warriors who so selflessly defended their country against the mighty Persian army, estimated at being a million strong for almost 7 days. This is the real story of the most famous last stand in history. At the height of the Persian-Greek war, Xerxes, King of Persia, intent on conquering all of Greece, led his mighty army into battle. But what awaited them was not to be anticipated. For seven days the King of Sparta Leonidas accompanied by just 300 Spartan warriors and a number of Greek regulars held off the Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae, so that the Greek army would have time to mobilise.

    Against impossible odds, the Spartans held the narrow pass; inflicting shocking casualty numbers on the Persians until every last Spartan was slain. This program is visually stunning with breathtaking dramatisations and graphics helping to bring the true story of the Spartans last stand to life and tell the real story behind what happened at the pass at Thermopylae, which is still used in military academies and by tacticians around the world today.

    Spartans: The Rise and Fall
    They were the finest fighters of the ancient world. Their bravery and skill helped preserve Western Civilization in the face of a massive invasion from the east. Concepts they developed, like the boot camp/military service and frontal assault, remain fixtures of military life and tactics to this day.

    Along with the Athenians with whom they fought a decades-long war they helped to shape, advance and preserve the glory that was Greece. A focus on Sparta and their exceptionally talented and disciplined fighters. Spartans - The Rise and Fall also looks at the significance of the Battle of Thermopylae, where a force led by 300 Spartans stalled a massive Persian army for almost a week.
