English Summary:

In Search of Myths and Heroes is an enjoyable series of programs: well researched, dynamic, visually sumptuous and informative. These programs are not out to give exhaustive explanations of historical events. Instead, they approach the heavy subject matter with a light touch, a sense of adventure and the feel of a quest -- searching for factual evidence of fictional characters.
Michael Wood has always brought history to life. He connects to the past through the people keeping the traditions alive and through the ancient festivals and celebrations that have been handed down across the centuries. His enthusiasm for his field is seemingly unlimited and his barely contained excitement as he follows his routes in search of evidence is damn well addictive.

His journeys take him to some of the most remote and exciting places on earth - from the fantastic landscapes of Western Tibet, to the mountains of Georgia and the Caucasus; and from the plains of Southern Iraq, to the coasts of Ethiopia, Yemen and the Horn of Africa. The stories he reveals will also take in Greece and Turkey, India and Nepal, Egypt and Israel, and the world of Celtic Britain and the West of Ireland.
In his investigations Michael Wood delves into the past to separate fact from fiction, and find the historical truth.

Episodes on DVD / Epizódok:

The Queen of Sheba - an exotic and mysterious woman of power - is immortalised in the world's great religious works, among them the Hebrew Bible and the Muslim Koran. She also appears in Turkish and Persian painting, in Kabbalistic treatises, and in medieval Christian mystical works, where she is viewed as the embodiment of Divine Wisdom and a foreteller of the cult of the Holy Cross. In Africa and Arabia her tale is still told to this day and, indeed, her tale has been told and retold in many lands for nearly 3,000 years.
Trying to ascertain who she may really have been is an arduous task, and a question soon arises. Why, if so little is known about her, has she become such an important figure?
The tales of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba have, after all, even provided the founding myths for the modern states of Israel and Ethiopia.


Shangri-La - For centuries, man has yearned for an earthly paradise, and no place better encapsulates this desire than Shangri-La - but was it ever real?
The tale of an earthly paradise is among the most enduring myths in the world. From Sumerian epic to the 'islands of the blest' in Celtic literature, it has been a recurring theme through many bodies of literature and for thousands of years. Not surprisingly, then, modern people have also been drawn to the dream of a lost paradise where the ravages of time and history have been held back, where human beings live in harmony with nature, and where the wisdom of the planet is saved for future generations. In other words, to a Shangri-La.


Jason and the Golden Fleece - Michael Wood looks at the Greek myth of Jason's mission to sail into the unknown and bring back the Golden Fleece, travelling from Greece to the wild mountains of the Caucasus to find the truth behind the legend.


Arthur: The Once and Future King

Michael Wood examines the enduring legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. How did the myth develop and what is the history behind this famed figure?


Hungarian Summary:

„Kalandos utazás a Föld körül a legnagyobb legendák nyomában! Lebilincselő!” The Times

Michael Wood ezúttal nem kisebb fába vágta a fejszéjét minthogy felderítse korunk legnagyobb legendáinak eredetét és a mögöttük meghúzódó valóságot. Az Arany gyapjú, Shangri-la – a Kék hold völgye- Sheba királynője, a Szent Grál. Ki ne hallott volna már ezekről a fantasztikus tárgyakról, helyekről, legendás uralkodókról, illetve mítoszokról. Fantasztikus utazás ez a föld körül, feltárva a régmúlt korok legnagyobb rejtélyeit. Nyugat Tibettől a Kaukázusokig, Etiópián és Yemenen keresztül vezet a kalandokkal teli út, de bejárjuk Görögországot, Indiát, Irakot és Izraelt, Angliát és Irországot is, hogy megtaláljuk a történelem legnagyobb rejtélyeinek elrejtett kirakós darabkáit.A kutatásai alatt Michael Wood lemerül a múlt árnyai közé és szétválasztja a tényeket a kitalációtól, hogy végül megtalálja a történelmileg is hitelesen bizonyított tényeket a legendák és mítoszok útvesztői között.
