Very interesting and well-done

"The program gives an excellent introduction to the evolution of Egyptian pyramids from the mud-brick mounds called mastaba to the the Great Pyramid of Khufu on the Giza Plateau. A good summary along wirh beautiful vidography and good graphics are given for each basic type. Included is an interesting discussion of the origin of the pyramid shape. Alternate ideas on how the pyramids were built are given; however, those of Martin Isler are emphasized. There is also a segment on the Great Sphinx. Foremost among the on-camera experts is the well-known and respected Egyptologist Zahi Hawass."

"This only good documentary lacks advanced 3D drawings, animations, and detailed schematics, and it relies too much on a direct talk to camera. There are only a few comparisons presenting pyramids simultaneously. The graphics is old-fashioned, and the style of whole production seems to be a bit dated."
