Sure it is obviously a an attempt to tie into the Nick Cage film. But, I thought it could offer some some interesting insight. Just pure speculation and wild tangents. Connecting Atlantis, Rosicrucians, and the Kabbalah to the Founding Fathers. Made a specific point to avoid anti-Semitism. Then I looked up who the host is. 'nuff said.

"William Henry's "National Treasures" is a surprisingly informative work on American founding fathers symbols. Symbols such as the bald eagle (which represents the spiritual principal and was associated with the Goddess Minerva & Athena according to William Henry), the caduceus (the symbol for the House of representatives, and medical profession), Allseeing eye within a pyramid, Apron, and ziggurat to name a few originated in ancient Khemet (Egypt)
William Henry's segment on Thomas Jefferson was pretty deep I did not know he did a study on Egyptian hieroglphs and Michamac "Indian" cryptographic scripts and saw them as almost identical. Jefferson was called the father of American cryptography. And his wheel cypher was used by spys during many modern wars. There are many more revelations on Jefferson on this DVD. Henry's discourse on Nimrod (founder of Freemasonry?,first Grand Master) extremely interesting. According to a widespread rumor, within the so called higher degrees of Freemasonry therein resides an inner circle, the enlightened, if there is an inner circle in Freemasonry this DVD could prepare you for this level. This DVD is very simliar to the DVD "Mother of Christian Church the Egyptian Temple" by an understudy of Dr. Ben this DVD (Egyptian Temple) provides a better balance and objectivity. Overall "National Treasures" is a surprisingly well put together piece of work."
A comprehensive product

"Henry's "National Treasures" is a rather comprehensive product concerning symbols etc. If you are familiar with masonic art and symbols you will not find so much new stuff, but the DVD is still very interesting and professional."

"National Treasures presents a wealth of fascinating things you probably didn't know about the founding of the U.S. To think that Sir Francis Bacon's secret treasure could be buried under the Capitol Building, and more! While the production of this documentary is not quite up to Stephen Spielberg standards, the information presented seems to be fairly well investigated and sourced. That which is speculative is identified as such, presented as a possibility only. Most people have no idea of the ideals and practices that the Founding Fathers, many of whom were Freemasons, believed in. And that the United States represented the new Atlantis to them. As recommended at the end of the documentary, it made me want to find out more about this."
Not what I expected

"My husband loves the National Treasure movies, so I thought this would be a great gift idea for him. When watched the video, though, we both ended up laughing at its cheesy direction and its far-reaching theories. We turned it off mid-way through and donated it."
