The Vikings (#2708)
In a dramatic two-hour special, NOVA tells the story of a people who were much more than ax-wielding pirates. Featuring stunning camera work in Scandinavia and the far-flung countries that the Vikings penetrated, the program shows just how bold, energetic and hardy these warriors were and retraces Viking voyages in faithful replicas of their magnificent ships, trying to determine how they were able to navigate so far beyond the sight of land in the stormy north Atlantic.
