- Program Description
Recreated from the seven-part PBS series, "Columbus and the Age of Discovery," this program focuses on the epic adventure of the great navigator's first Atlantic crossing, as well as on the mixed fortunes of his later voyages and the complex, enduring legacy of the encounter he initiated between the peoples of the Old and New Worlds. This program analyzes how Christopher Columbus came to stand at history's most critical juncture, and how both hemispheres were changed forever by his "Enterprise of the Indies."
