I was riveted from start to finish. I had absolutely no idea that it took so long and was so laborious to decipher hieroglyphs from the rosetta stone. For some reason I had the impression that the rosetta stone unlocked its own secrets but this was far from the truth. Champollion was a genius who did so much in the short time that he had on earth but it was such a life well lived. He was like a human super nova... brilliant and fleeting. I loved the acting, the music and the atmosphere, it hardly seemed like a documentary at all. I wish all documentaries were this entertaining... maybe they should all have Elliot Cowan in them. Excellent job from start to finish.
