    Pyramid-Obelisk, Inca, Colosseum-Stonehenge Boxset - Travel Video.
    DVD. Secrets Of Lost Empires The civilizations of the ancient world left behind awe-inspiring examples of their engineering genius. Yet few clues remain to tell us just how, with limited technology, they achieved their extraordinary feats. To uncover the secrets of such Herculean labors, NOVA sent teams of experts to five archeological sites. The challenges? To actually test their building hypotheses-using traditional techniques. Pyramid takes us to the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Giza, where Egyptologist Mark Lehner, stonemason Roger Hopkins (of This Old House), and a team of Egyptian workers face the daunting task of building an 18-foot stone pyramid in three weeks. Obelisk again sends Lehner and Hopkins to the land of the pharaohs, this time to show how a colossal obelisk could have been quarried, chiseled, shipped up the Nile, and erected on a base in front of a temple-using only stones, ropes, logs, dirt, and some monumental human effort. Colosseum travels to the famous Roman amphitheater, where the blood-thirsty audience was once shielded by a gigantic canopy. Historian Rainer Graefe has come up with a controversial explanation of how, but will it win out over a more accepted concept? Stonehengevisits one of the most mysterious places on earth, erected by early Britons some 4,500 years ago. Archeologist Julian Richards, engineer Mark Whitby, the intrepid Roger Hopkins, and a band of volunteers give it their best-to move, raise, and cap a Stonehenge-like structure, armed only with Stone Age tools. Inca profiles the magnificent, earthquake-enduring Incan citadels high in the Peruvian Andes, all built without benefit of the wheel, iron tools, draft animals, or mortar. A team of experts chip away at some theories- and local villagers create a breathtaking, 100-foot suspension bridge using nothing but grass.

    Nazca - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Approximately 450 kilometres south of Peru's capital of Lima a desolate road leads into the vast terrain of the scant, desert-like highlands. In the midst of this almost lifeless world and surrounded by sandy mountains is the small airport of Nazca. Indeed, a single aircraft once made this region famous. One day while flying here in 1939, American Paul Kosok made an amazing discovery: long drawn-out lines that extend across the ground that are the traces of a mysterious pre-Columbian culture. These strange hundred metre lines were created by the Nazca culture and according to archaeological research date back to the sixth or seventh century B.C. Since their discovery they have created much controversy with regard to their origin, function and significance. There are more than a hundred lines and figures within the surrounding plains and mountains. Most of the markings were revealed by the removal of the top layer of dark stones from the ground. In recent years one of the images known as the Astronaut has captured the imagination more than any other. The proportions and geometric precision of the different images raise numerous questions. How could the Nazca people have created these gigantic designs? Recently a further image of perfect proportions and measuring a hundred metres was also discovered. But how were those who created these enormous images able to gain a true perspective of their work? Is it possible that a precursor of the hot-air balloon existed in those bygone times?

    Mysterious World of the Inca - Travel Video.
    DVD. ABCD. 53 Minutes. South America used to be the home to many Indian cultures, but one of them stood apart from the rest - the Inca Empire.

Although the legacy of the Incas attracts scientists from around the world, much of their life style is veiled with mystery. Today researchers rely only on archeological findings and reports from the first chroniclers. One of these chroniclers was Felipe Guam?n Poma de Ayala, whose images from the famous "First Chronicles and Good Governing" were the motives of this film.

Nature Wonders. 10 Minutes Deep within the Peruvian Rainforest, on the western edge of the Amazon Basin, is one of the most impressive nature reservations in the world, the Manu Biosphere Reservation. The Manu National Park covers an area of more than 18,000 square kilometres and is one of the largest untouched rainforests in South America. Very few settlers live in the almost inaccessible tropical rainforests in the southeast of Peru.

The Manu River is one of the final refuges and breeding areas for the threatened River Turtle. Along the river's tributaries, there is another rare and threatened species, the Kabibaras, the world's largest rodent.

    Touring Inca Land - Travel Video.
    DVD. On Tour. 26 Minutes. A journey in the land of the Incas: few other South American tribes are as fascinating as this old and legendary culture whose domain extended from today's Ecuador to the southernmost reaches of Chile and Argentina. Our first stop is Salta, capital of the province of the same name. The city possesses a large number of historic buildings many of which commemorate Argentina's wars of independence at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The atmosphere of those times is still present in much of Salta and in contrast to the somewhat modest architecture of the Convento San Bernardo Cathedral, the statue built in honour of General De G?emes is truly monumental. The one hundred and fifty kilometre journey from Salta to Cachi has much diverse scenery. Molinos is situated two thousand metres above sea level and is a sleepy village with a population of two and a half thousand. Despite its remote location it has a long history and was founded in the middle of the seventeenth century. The El Anfiteatro Canyon is well known for its fine acoustics and the echo created by this natural amphitheatre is quite outstanding. In addition to its unique acoustics, the narrow canyon has a hundred metre high rock walls. Only a little remains of the former great realm of the Incas whose religion was eventually replaced with Christianity. However, their magnificent landscape has most certainly survived!
