More About This episode

The 1962 film "Lawrence of Arabia" won seven Oscars, including one for Best Picture. Its subject, English soldier T.E. Lawrence, was just as celebrated in real life, seen by many as a military genius and a romantic war hero. Yet some believe he is one of the greatest liars of the 20th Century. Join historians and battlefield archaeologists as they uncover unique evidence from newly found, top-secret documents and a cutting-edge archaeological investigation. For the first time in nearly a century, the debate over T.E. Lawrence can finally be resolved.
