5.0 out of 5 stars ancient greece, 10 Sep 2009
a very good overview of ancient Greece from the bronze age to Alexander. There are good maps. However if one wants to pursue any subject in depth one will have to look else where

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 14 Jan 2009
To follow the Beatles as Paul McCartney said, "was always going to be a difficult act", and for Bettany Hughes to follow "The Spartans"The Spartans (Channel 4) is likewise going to be difficult, but with this DVD she did it. Her production team and back-ups are excellent. I recently bought it, partly because ancient Greece fascinates me and partly because of her Spartans. I was not disappointed, actually delighted. The Minoan civilisation is a lot less meaty than Sparta or Athens in known facts, and one is largely dependant on archaeology with only some scraps recorded in Egypt. Never-the-less she easiy filled out an hour and a half. I would have been happy for twice as much. Brilliantly filmed "on location" with stunning back ground scenery, but also with archaeologically recovered artefacts in museums Bettany Hughes creates a picture of the first truly European civilisation. Creative, informative enjoyable if this is your type of thing "buy it". P.S. although this is labeled (REGION 1) I was able to view on my region 2 computer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Viewing, 27 Aug 2006
This review is from: All Access [DVD] (DVD)
I recently bought this item; a first time purchase of a Penthouse DVD, and am very pleased with it. The many gorgous girls are well presented; sometimes inside, but often outside in bright sunshine. Sometimes one could wish that the camera could linger a little longer. Also enjoyable, the montages with several delicious girls all together at the same time. More of that would have been a good thing.That said a nice way to spend an evening in.
