I found this to be very intriguing. This is actually a series of documentaries on Atlantis, dragons, the Holy Grail, and King Arthur that is narrated by Leonard Nimoy. I found it concise and quite interesting and it made me want to learn more. I knew very little about these subjects, so it was a nice overview giving several viewpoints.

My kids, who are loving the Greek mythology based series "Percy Jackson", enjoyed this. We love shows like this.
Appealing documentary series.

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This two disc set,which has recently been reduced in price, contains four episodes from the A & E documentary series: "Ancient Mysteries - Myths and Legends", introduced and narrated by Leonard Nimoy.
All the four episodes are stereophonic and about 45~6 minutes in length, and as usual with A & E product, does not contain sub-titles.
The four episodes are:
Camelot ( 1995 - 45'56" ) Good, but with no mention of Avalon.
The Quest for the Holy Grail ( 1995 - 44'48" ) Good, and actually mentions the bloodline of Christ.
Atlantis: The Lost Civilization ( 1995 - 45'58" ) Very good, but glosses over Atlantis' predecessor Lemuria.
Dragons ( 1997 - 45'28" ) Okay + ; missed mentioning how something this supposedly large and heavier than air could fly... ( Internal gas chambers in their bodies similar to an internal hot air ballon, plus hollow bones to lessen weight ).
...worthwhile for your video library - obviously this title was originally published before dual layer dvd's became the norm...."
