The Gate: A Pacific Journey

 

The huge earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan six years ago swept vast amounts of debris across the Pacific. Some objects reached the shore of Oregon, including the crossbeams from the gates of a Shinto shrine. Thanks to the efforts of people living there, those precious artifacts have made the long journey home. The film tells the story of how this homecoming formed bonds of friendships between people living an ocean apart.

The Greeks
The Good Strife

 

Explore Greek history with archaeologists, historians, scientists and artists who are launching groundbreaking new explorations of what made the achievements of the ancient Greeks great.

 

The Good Strife
In the wake of the Bronze Age collapse, Greek civilization entered a crippling dark age. But with centralized monarchies out of the way, a new type of society was given the chance to rise from the ashes — built not by kings from the top down, but by individuals from the bottom up. Through centuries of strife, or perhaps because of them, this disparate group of people, bound by a common language, epic stories of heroic ancestors, a shared belief in the gods and an insatiably competitive spirit, delivered some of humanity’s greatest achievements – from the first Olympic Games to early theories of nature to an entirely new system of government: democracy.
