Genius of the Ancient World Premieres Mon August 1 on Acorn TV



In three part documentary, 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 physically 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.

Airdate: Monday August 1, 2022 on Acorn TV.

All three episodes available at once.
