This episode of The True Story takes a look behind the Oscar-winning film Gladiator. Real gladiators were far more bloody and skilful than anything in the movies and the emperor Commodus was crazier in real life than on film. The True Story reveals the world of the arena - sex, fame, blood, gore - and the fall of an emperor whose obsession with gladiators had a bodycount.
