Life of Muhammad
This series charts the extraordinary story of a man who, in little more than 20 years, changed the world forever. In a journey that is both literal and historical, host Rageh Omaar travels to the place of Muhammad's birth to retrace the actual footsteps of the Prophet, from his humble beginnings in Mecca to his struggles with accepting his Prophetic role; from his flight to Medina and the founding of the first Islamic constitution to his subsequent military and political successes and failures - through to his death and his legacy.
