Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
The coming of the new millennium brought lists of all sorts, including this compilation by the Biography Channel, profiling some of history's most influential people. A group of panelists from Henry Kissinger to Isaac Stern selected 100 people who have made a difference in the last 1,000 years of world history. The stories of the lives and accomplishments of these people are then told using archival film clips, photographs, artwork, personal accounts, journals, and scholarly commentary. The influential names range from Eleanor Roosevelt to Ghengis Khan.
