Even after 20 years it holds up extremely well; however...
17 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this update interview on the DVD Michael expressed how much he'd love to make an update. Its time only because so much has happened since, and there is so much more evidence to examine. NO REDO OF THE ORIGINAL! Its fine as it is. But the stratigraphy studies on the Plain, the marine sites of bronze age ships, the discovery of the Mycenaean funerary sites, the update on the lower town and the defensive ditch and update the location of the recently discovered Mycenaean palaces on Salamis and re-identifying Ithaca. There is material enough for at least two hours of screen time, maybe three. And there is also Fagel's exceptional translation to refer to. Michael, we're hungry for more. Lets go.
