If you're into archeology, this is a program to watch
18 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

The program is well presented, drawing from legend, fact and speculation in equal measure. Bob Brier does a good job showing us what and who the real Cleopatra was like. I was pleased they did not simply dub her as a seductress as the usual view of her is, but as the intelligent learned person she really was. The program moves through her life from childhood to her untimely death. It is obvious from the program that she was a woman caught up in the events of her time.
