I was expecting to see a lot of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, but instead I saw a 60 minute docudrama that had so many breaks I lost count. After each break one was subjected to a lot of retracing of the previous "episode", thereby stretching this tedious "mock"udrama to 90 minutes. I would expect an 8 year old to want more documentary and less badly acted drama. The Egyptian director of Antiquities seems to get his two cents worth on just about every Ancient Egyptian documentary these days. He is about as genuine as a three dollar note, playing down the fact that there was, and still is a huge desecration of ancient burial sites (and even more modern Jewish synagogues and Coptic Churches for that matter)going on in Egypt still and lamenting how antiquities were "stolen". There was and is a lot of palms being greased so his protests are a bit "precious". Don't but this DVD. I have quite a few History Channel DVDs that are very good. This one is less than very bad!

Do not waste your money. I have a huge black border around he picture, and as I do not have a giant size TV, it is unwatchable. Total waste of a tenner, and it's all on YouTube anyway. Do yourself a favor, and move on.

Brilliant is the only way to describe this docudrama. Very well acted, Historically interesting and accurate. This is now my favorite dvd in all my collection of over 300 dvd's
