There is perhaps no person in the world who is more famous than Muhammad Ali. His picture hangs in the Smithsonian institution in Washington D.C. as well as on the walls of mud huts in underdeveloped countries that have never seen a boxing match. This is the story of a man who changed the face of sports, and political action and popular culture in the twentieth century; and, who has gone on to become one of the great humanitarians of all time. Through rare footage and photos, as well as vintage newsreels and interviews MUHAMMAD ALI: THE GREATEST is the definitive look at the three time Heavyweight Champion of the World. Taking you all the way from his early years in Louisville Kentucky to his triumphant return to the world stage at the 1966 Olympics in Atlanta, this program provides a rare glimpse at the fighter, the mouth and ultimately the man who has become a living legend.
