Genius of the Ancient World

Historian Bettany Hughes travels to India, Greece and China on the trail of three giants of ancient philosophy: Buddha, Socrates and Confucius. All three travelled great distances, philosophizing as they went and drawing conclusions from their journeys. Hughes gets under the skin of these three great minds and shines a light on the overlooked significance of the 5th century BC in shaping modern thought across the world.
