"Most Lethal Weapons" (8pm): Throughout human history, mankind has strived to create new and inventive ways of killing. Countries conquered and empires shattered on the backs of the most lethal weapons of the ancient world. From the ancient napalm, Greek Fire, to the weapon that helped the Mongols create the largest ancient empire, the composite bow; the speedy battlefield chariot which changed battle tactics, to the simple yet effective caltrop still in use by militaries today, which Top 10 deadly weapon will blow apart the competition and claim the spot of most game-changing?

"Total Dictators" (9pm): Greed, genocide, political manipulation and murder most foul -- these dictators would stop at nothing to make sure their names went down in history as the greatest rulers to have ever lived. Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun, Cleopatra -- they are the names you know, with the facts you don't. Which of these Top 10 tyrants will fight off the competition to become the number one dictator of the ancient world?

"Ancient Greek Tech" (10pm): The ancient Greeks are credited in the western world for inventing philosophy, democracy, and...robotics? Pioneering technological inventors, the ancient Greeks created inventions that were seemingly impossible: an ancient death ray constructed by Archimedes, Heron's automatic doors, Philon's ingenious use of robotics. Which of these Top 10 ancient Greek technologies will prove to be the most advanced?
