You are there (Television program)
The death of Socrates: 399 B.C. Hours before he is to be executed for refusing to recognize God, Socrates explains to his friends why he must choose death over life. His friends desperately try to convince him otherwise but he valiantly rationalizes that his search for truth would be invalidated should he opt to pay a fine and admit wrongdoing rather than meet his fate.
