Forged by conquest and ruled by intimidation and diplomacy,
Egypt's New Kingdom was built by men and women of astonishing
ambition. For nearly 500 years (1560 - 1080 B.C), the pharaohs
of Egypt struggled to shape the science, culture and politics
of the ancient world. In the process they would create the
first great empire in history. Through remarkably well preserved
letters and personal accounts, historians have brought to
life the passion and human drama of an age that would inspire
countless generations to come...
is a fascinating look at almost 500 years worth of Egyptian
history, cataloguing the rise and fall of the Egyptian's golden
into three separate programmes - The Warrior Pharaohs,
Pharaohs of the Sun and The Last Great Pharaoh
- this DVD examines the battles which helped build the empire,
the accumulation of wealth and the building of the pyramids
and the final events that helped bring the nation to its knees.
examines all the famous rulers, but my personal favourite
is the reign of Akhenaten and his beautiful wife Nefertiti
- who mysteriously disappeared for reasons scholars still
don't fully understand.
has all the hallmarks of a well researched and produced documentary
and will keep anyone who has an interest in this subject well
composer should be scolded for ripping off numerous music
by more accomplished composers - including John Barry's composition
for Dances With Wolves which is plagiarised and used
a little too often.
is an excellent collection of documentaries calling on some
of the greatest scholars in the field who try to piece together
Egypt's golden empire.
