5.0 out of 5 stars History at its least dull! 14 Aug 2009
By Marie-D

Adam Hart Davies and his crew are an entertaining group who present many details of historical innovation and discovery by the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians in lively and informative ways and do demonstrations that give inspiration for home based investigations.
The programmes are aimed at people studying with the Open University (I'm assuming) but both my boys (6 and 15) like the engaging style of delivery. Adam Hart-Davies is so not stuffy and the dialogue is engaging.
I wish I could find the rest of the series on DVD!

As with all Adam Hart-Davis videos they are clear and well presented. His relaxed manner on screen makes everything clear and easy to understand. I recommend you also look at the Cosmos series he presented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Programme 18 Oct 2010
I looked for this programme for more than a year before I found it on Amazon. It is so good that it should be in everybody's and every school's library. It's very well documented, very pedagogical and very informative. Thank you Adam Hart-Davis.
Are the other titles in the original series available: the Islamic World, the Aztecs and so on? there's only the Greeks and the Romans on the DVD. That was my only disappointment: not enough.In any case, thank you for carrying this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show 12 Jun 2010
Its a very nice series of movies documenting the discoveries of the ancient. Giving a demonstration by restructuring a model of the ancient invention. A must have in your library of documentary DVDs. Well at least it was worth the money spent.

1.0 out of 5 stars 3 epsiodes 9 Jun 2010

I returned this item.

It contains only 3 episodes from the series.

Google search "What the Ancients Did For Us Wiki Episodes". UKTV History use to show this endlessly and I guarantee there were more than 3 episodes in the series.
