I'm waiting for those wonderful specials to come out on DVD that the Discovery Channel lately aired about ancient Egypt--Tut, Ramesses II, and one or two others. They were magnificantly shot and scripted and you'd swear the actors were the real people plucked from history (especially Carter and Belzoni).

I saw one on the mystery of King Tut's death and it was excellent. The one on Cleopatra's death was also good. They actually made a model of King Tut's face.

I didn't see the one on Cleopatra but the one on Tut was fantastic. They really went to town on those specials and did a splendid job. I just visited the Discovery Channel "store" and not surprisingly the DVDs aren't out yet. It'll probably be several more months. I did see this one on Roman gladiators and it looks very interesting.
