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.

Movie Reviews

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...."
