    The Great Pyramid (Giza Cheops Pyramid) Egypt- Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The Cheops Pyramid has existed for 4,500 years, the largest of three pyramids close to Cairo, beyond the suburbs of Gizeh. Completed in around 2,590 B.C, it took over twenty years to construct this huge monument on the edge of the desert. Although lacking the technology of today, amazingly, the pyramids were constructed with great architectural and astronomical precision. At a height of 128 metres, the Cheops Pyramid consists of more than two and a half million limestone blocks, each one of which weighs an average two and a half tons. As though standing guard, the Sphinx - a prone lion with a human head - has always been a symbol of mystique. It was carved from a single rock and measures 21 metres high and 74 metres long. The Cheops Pyramid is the most extraordinary tomb of all time, the tomb of a living god. and the most wonderful of the world's seven wonders of Antiquity!

    Edfu - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Mighty walls protect the interior of the beautiful Edfu Temple in the legendary land of the Pharaohs, a holy place that was constructed according to ancient Egyptian tradition, built by the Ptolemaics between 237 and 57 B.C. Although the Edfu Temple is among one of Egypt's earlier temples, its architecture, with an inner courtyard and magnificent columns, reflects the design of far older temples. The interior of the temple contains a huge array of hieroglyphics that describe religious legends, while others tell of ancient mythological tales that involve war and battle. In the temple's holiest place is the altar that held the Sun Barque and also a solid granite shrine which dates back to the 30th dynasty.

    Karnak - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The Egyptian temples of Karnak are located 3 kilometres north of Luxor. The awe-inspiring Avenue Of The Sphinxes leads to the entrance of this magnificent location. It was here during more than two thousand years that the kings of numerous epochs had their final resting places. Artistically carved hieroglyphs and paintings can be found on all the buildings in Karnak. They relate to various gods and also to the royal builders of the respective temples. Pinedjem, the high priest of Amun in Thebes and Pharaoh of the 21st Dynasty, has been immortalized by a fifteen metre high colossus. The impressive courtyard of Ramses The Third's temple is flanked on three sides with imposing Osiris pillars that are adorned with hieroglyphs that depict the Pharaoh in his finest jubilee clothes. A hundred and thirty four columns, each with a circumference of ten metres, once supported the roof of the `Great Column Hall' that has long since disappeared. Like a wonder of the world this hall contains each of the breathtaking twenty metre high columns. Even today, hieroglyphs cover a large part of the gigantic columns that originally stood in the darkness of the main temple and were covered by a massive ceiling. Due to its beautiful buildings and art treasures, the temple area of Karnak is a much-prized and unique jewel of ancient Egyptian history and culture.

    Kom Ombo - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Today, the Egyptian city of Kom Ombo has approximately 70,000 inhabitants. Its outstanding double temple has made it famous throughout the world. Today, the mummified remains of ancient Nile crocodiles are displayed within a chapel that was once dedicated to the goddess, Hathor. These great reptiles were worshipped as sacred animals. One half of the double temple belonged to the crocodile-headed deity, Sobek, the son of Hathor. Today's Kom Ombo Temple was divided into two asymmetric parts by its Ptolemaic builders. Within the right section of the building, Sobek was worshipped, while the left half was dedicated to Haroeris. The external surrounding wall of the temple contains several strange pictures and reliefs including portrayals of early medical instruments. A kind of medicine cupboard was carved into the stone. It shows highly developed medical implements, among them a variety of surgical instruments and even forceps. The profession of doctor was popular and widespread throughout ancient Egypt. However, the Gods were also called upon as soon as there was illness as it was believed that medicine alone could not provide a cure. Images of numerous Egyptian rulers adorn the walls. Queen Cleopatra, the legendary last Ptolemaic sovereign, was also immortalized here. Outside the temple there is a "Birth House" next to the small Hathor Chapel. The Mammisi contains the remarkable portrayal of a nursing mother. During the Ptolemaic period each temple contained a Mammisi that was decorated with portrayals and hieroglyphs. Here, the birth of the children of the gods was celebrated. Due to the ancient relics and the double temple of Kom Ombo we have been able to gain an even greater understanding of Egypt's fascinating past.

    Memphis and Sakkara - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Memphis &Sakkara Around 2900 B.C., when Upper and Lower Egypt became one Great Empire, the Pharaohs declared Memphis, which lies in the southern Nile Delta, as their capital city. During its golden years in the second millennium B.C., Memphis extended 15 km, from Gizeh to Sakkara. Up until the time of the Roman Empire, this ancient city's former buildings had been constructed from air-dried bricks and therefore, due to this process, sadly did not survive the years. Granite and limestone were used solely for its Temples, Palaces And Statues. The frightening and dismissive gesture of the Sphinx was meant to frighten away grave robbers and guard the Necropolis, the place of the dead. Its lion's body and human head symbolize courage and mental prowess. Apart from Gizeh, Sakkara, in Lower Egypt, was an important city dedicated to the dead. The mother of all pyramids lies here, Pharaoh Djoser's Step Pyramid, which dates back to the year 2600 B.C. For almost 5000 years these stones have survived the forces of nature and who knows what future excavations may reveal from the sands of the Egyptian desert, sands that are not only of time but which held the hopes of the pharaohs and created among the richest treasures known to mankind.

    Philae - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Philae The Temple Of Philae lies on a small island on the river Nile, just a few kilometers away from the Egyptian city of Aswan. The construction of the Aswan Dam meant that the holy island of Philae was under threat from the waters of the Nile. However, due to a major international rescue operation, its temples and numerous buildings were relocated to the island of Gelkia. The great Isis Temple Of Philae is acknowledged as one of the most well preserved Egyptian holy places dating from Ptolemaic times and some of its foundations are believed to derive from far older religious buildings. Next to the smaller Hathor Temple, fourteen magnificent columns and capitals rise majestically into the sky. The `Nilometer' was reassembled on Gelkia. This device was the official measurement system for Egyptian taxes. Thus, the level of taxes was closely associated with the water level of the Nile. Egyptian life was dominated by the Nile and thus the foundation of the development of ancient Egyptian culture was due to its life-giving presence.

    Thebes - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Thebes is the legendary necropolis on the Nile's western shore. Two impressive 18m high Colossus Of Memnos watch over the entrance. It is here that The Valley of the Kings is located. Apart from the Pyramids of Gizeh, this is the most famous location in Egypt. More than 60 graves have been discovered in the necropolis, including that of the great king, Ramses I. The first Egyptian ruler, Thutmosis I, was buried in the Valley Of The Kings. Prior to this, Amanophis I had prepared a secret grave in nearby rocks. In addition to the royal burial places, more then 500 private graves of priests, aristocrats and civil servants that date back from between the 11th and 26th Dynasties, have also been discovered here. In contrast to the royal graves, the portrayals and hieroglyphics that are contained in the burial places of the middle classes contain worldly objects. The everyday life of ancient Egypt is illustrated in exquisite detail. In ancient times, it was believed that the addition of hieroglyphics on tomb walls and artistically designed reliefs comforted the dead on their journey through the underworld. Close by is the Valley of the Queens where more than 70 tombs have been discovered. Apart from royal queens, numerous dead princes were also buried in this part of the necropolis, such as the son of Ramses III. The work of the archaeologists has not yet been completed on this site and so it is quite likely that this scared place will one day reveal more of its splendid and mysterious treasures.

    Cairo - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Cairo is a world metropolis and tantamount to being an open-air museum. The Nile divides it in two and the centre of the city contains modern shops and office buildings in close proximity to medieval churches and ancient mosques. The Khan El Khalili Bazaar is like something from a bygone age and where the Orient combines with the Middle Ages, A Thousand And One Nights amid Islamic Cairo. Goods inspired by pharaohs Tutenkhamen and Nofretete are in constant demand and it's where haggling is the norm. The bazaar is a colourful place with smoking hookahs, exotic carpets and musical instruments as well as a huge array of herbs and spices. Abu Serga is the city's oldest church and dates back to Fatimaic times. It was built on the ruins of an even older church in the Coptic district of Cairo. The three-aisled basilica was founded by Roman Christians at the end of the 4th century. Built in 1902, the Egyptian Museum's one hundred and fifty thousand exhibits amount to being one of the greatest historical collections in the world. When both the Greek and Roman civilisations had reached the zenith of their power, Egypt already had a history that dated back almost three thousand years. In 1830 King Mohammed Ali had a mosque built and named it after himself but it is now more commonly known as the Alabaster Mosque. It was eighteen years in construction and was built on the site of a former Mameluckan Palace. Egypt and its capital of Cairo is the oldest cultural land on Earth. A country that impresses with both its five thousand years of history and lively modern spirit.

    Cairo - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Cairo is a cultural melting pot and with a population of sixteen million it is the largest metropolis on the African continent. The Egyptian people refer to their capital city as Um Al Dunya, `Mother of the World'. The history of the Sankt Sergius Church dates back to Abu Serga in the 5th century A.D. Legend has it that it was built on the site where the Holy Family once sought refuge. Thus, the richly decorated church is a popular Christian place of pilgrimage and is situated in Fustat in the middle of Koptic, the oldest district in Cairo. The spacious Mamelucks Necropolis is unique within the Islamic world. Here, instead of conventional graves, entire houses were built for the dead. Within the necropolis the mosques and mausoleums of the Mameluck sovereigns are particularly interesting. Built in 1900, each day the Egypt Museum attracts thousands of visitors who come to experience for themselves the legendary treasures of ancient history that comprise more than 120,000 different objects from 4500 years of Egyptian history, including the unique Tut-Ench-Amun exhibition. Cairo really does strive to do justice to its name, Mother of the World. After all, it was this city that united the glory of the Pharaos with the Early Christian and Islamic worlds.

    The Egyptian Museum in Cairo - Travel Video.
    DVD. Egyptmania. 80 Minutes. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo was officially inaugurated on 15th November 1902. As this program explores its rooms, a long history of splendor and mystery comes back to life before our eyes. This is a place where man's great discoveries become legend, like the deeds and monuments of the great pharaohs of antiquity. The Egyptian civilization began to develop in about 4000 BC. This was an era that started in the very dawn of history. The pharaohs were simply local princes and Egypt had not yet been unified. For 3300 years, a boy-king fulfilled the dream of every pharaoh: resting in peace amidst marvels unknown to mortals. For three generations, his treasure has inspired the world. This is the treasure of Tutankhamen. It is just one of the countless marvels conserved in the most majestic temple of Egyptian art: the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This program takes you on a tour of the statues, manuscripts, paintings, and other treasures held in the museum.
