Ancients Behaving Badly is an American documentary series that aired from November to December 2009 on The History Channel. The show focuses on the misdeeds of famous historical figures using forensic investigation, animated sequences, and historian interviews. Although events are depicted in a serious manner, the series has an occasionally tongue-in-cheek narrative style.
Narrated by Tom McCamus, each episode features a new historical leader who "behaved badly." The person's life story is explored through cartoon sequences and historian interviews. The historical figure is then placed on an "Ancients Behaving Badly Psychograph." The y-axis rates them from "goal driven killer" to "psychopathic murderer", while the x-axis measures individual pathologies.
