Summary
The secrets of lives once lived. Never before could you get so close to 7000 years of history! Dazzling spectacles re-create rituals and events -- from the bloodletting of Maya kings and a pharaoh's last journey to the secret pleasures of a Roman empress. Original location cinematography in 25 countries takes you from Cuzco in Peru to Petra in Jordan. Computer graphics restore Egypt's pyramids and the Great Wall of China with breathtaking accuracy. From ancient Mesopotamia to modern Tibet, lost worlds live again in these episodes
