(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pretty cheap for 9 hours of running time. The animations are very cool, lots of good footage of old castles in the knights templer episode, very interesting historical story's like the real dracula, hitlers supercity , amazingly huge constructions displayed in many of the episodes in great detail, Three thumbs up."
5 star computer stimulations, 2 star hype & repetition

"My husband & I love documentaries. We tend to like the BBC ones because they treat the viewer as intelligent adults and slide in dry humour every so often all the while without shouting. This documentary is a little more dumbed down & we needed to take brakes from the extra hype and constant repetition. The computer stimulations are 5star and I wish they would have given them more screen time."

"These documentaries contain an element of speculation, and employ a degree of imagination. Having said that if they are viewed with an open mind and appreciated for what they are intended to be, (not entirely based on fact, but making reasonable, educated assumptions as to what might have been) then these documentaries are very enjoyable in their own right. How seriously the viewer takes what is being said is an indication of how well informed or feeble minded he or she is. In other words how much you choose to believe is entirely up to you. If you are a well informed discerning viewer you will take what you see with a grain of salt and fill in the blanks for yourself. Nothing is set in stone. The viewer is merely presented with reasonable assumptions, possibilites and probabilites. The computer generated reconstructions are well done and make visualization a pleasurable experience. Well worth viewing."
A great DVD set for any history fan

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD set was a fantastic buy. The episodes basically take a period of history and recreate it with modern day computer generated graphics and explain the significance of the structures, the events surrounding the structures, and the people involved. The episodes generally consist of the camera crew going to the area being covered and showing what it currently looks like. They throw in the comp generated version if what it used to look like. The archeologists/historians/narrator explain the historical significance of things throughout. There are also some dramatizations, but they are pretty minimal.
There is a wide variety of topics that are covered, so chances are you would find at least a few interesting episodes.
Some of the episodes include Rameses the II's Egypt, Knight's Templar, Jerusalem, Hitlers under ground bunkers, Greece, Pagan's in the British isles and more. My personal favorites were the 14th century Scotland, the early Christianity episode, and the episode on Vlad Dracula was fantastic.
For the price this DVD costs used you really can't go wrong, I highly recommend it."
