THE BARBARIANS ARE COMING ....
... to THE HISTORY CHANNEL in a 2-part world premiere special January 2004
Monday, January 19 at 9-11pm ET/PT : "VIKINGS/GOTHS" and Tuesday, January 20 at 9-11pm ET/PT: "MONGOLS/HUNS".
Barbarians are violent forces from the dark beyond, savage tribes who hurl themselves repeatedly against the bastions of civilization. In a two-part, four-hour World Premiere Special, The History Channel vividly tells their story, aided by cinematic on-location re-creations and experts who help place their astonishing sagas into historical perspective.
"BARBARIANS" is an epic four-hour special that covers nearly 1,000 years of history and conquest, focusing on four main Barbarian groups: the Vikings, the Goths, the Mongols, and the Huns. To help bring this history to life, the production had a full crew of 80 and set a new standard for historical re-enactments whose scale truly evokes the scope and feel of world-changing events in ancient history. More than 400 costumes were prepared for the production, together with sets, props and locations to represent the different time periods.
"BARBARIANS" makes its debut on The History Channel on Monday and Tuesday, January 19 and 20 at 9-11 pm ET/PT each night. The two hours on "VIKINGS" and "GOTHS" air on January 19, and the two hours on "MONGOLS" and "HUNS" air on January 20.
