What about the earthquake?
22 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Alexandria: The Greatest City" is another show about the ancient world hosted by Bettany Hughes. You can tell she really loved talking about the city and her excitement permeated the show. During the course of the show, she discussed the city's founding during the time of Alexander the Great (it was one of many cities named after him), the multinational aspects of the town, the university, the work of Galen and the great library--the greatest repository of knowledge in the ancient world. She also, sadly, discusses some of the city's downfall--but only some. Oddly, she never mentioned the great earthquake during the 4th century after which much of the town fell into the sea. This odd omission is one of the reasons I scored it a 7 and not higher. However, like her other wonderful documentaries, it is STILL well worth seeing.
