Andrew Marr's History of the World Alexander the Great

Andrew Marr explores the life of Alexander the Great. He takes a look at stories of Alexander’s childhood and upbringing, his imperial conquests and the legacy of his empire. Warning: There are some violent scenes. Teacher notes: Discuss Alexander's upbringing and how it could have influenced and shaped his later life. Students could compare Alexander to today's leaders – what qualities that he possessed made him a good leader (i.e. integrating cultures), which would quite clearly not stand up today?
