Their story is as amazing as the circus itself -- how five poor boys from Baraboo, Wisconsin became "kings of the circus... when the circus was king." This virtual trip to the circus with today's Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey -- the Greatest Show on Earth -- takes a nostalgic trip through the creation of the greatest entertainment empire the world has ever seen.
