Colossus of Rhodes / Pharos of Alexandria

This program features two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. To celebrate their victory over invaders, the Greek islanders of Rhodes built a statue of the sun god Helios, so large it was dubbed the Colossus. The towering Lighthouse, or Pharos, of Alexandria was the first skyscraper in the world's first metropolis, which was the first attempt to establish a world culture.
