The golden area of Ancient Egypt from the 18th and 18th dynasty
17 January 2006 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A documentary whirlwind that rages over the highlights of the 18th and 19th dynasty of Ancient Egypt, with the particulars of Ahmosis, Hatshepstut and Thutmosis III, Achnaton and Thutanchamun and Ramesses II.

It is indeed a wealth of information that comes to us, founded in well-documented letters (from the Armana period), temple inscriptions and stèles, and it gives a reasonable overview of one of Egypt's most exciting times.

But this PBS project is getting more and more into the heavy-handed style of National Geographics, where there's only time for the highlights but scanty attention to a cohesive storyline. We hop from great name to great name without much feelings for the great age itself. It's Empire Busting Time!

Nevertheless one is indeed carried away by the enthusiastic comments (by Keith David) and the visuals are by times breathtaking.
