Item Code : WINS2942Mystic Lands. Review: This is a series of documentaries on various cultures and sacred places: Varanasi, India; the Taj Mahal; Haitian voodoo; Hinduism on Bali; Burma; Peru; Egypt; Jerusalem; Greece; Australian aboriginal tradition; the Anasazi ruins in the American Southwest; and Tantric Buddhism in Bhutan. They are each about 25 minutes long. They don't presuppose any knowledge of the religions they cover. But far more remarkably, they don't oversimplify and very rarely mislead or descend into shallow sentimentality. They maintain fairness to the traditions as well as historical accuracy without condescension. The ones on Burma, Haiti, Varanasi and Peru are especially good; Jerusalem and Egypt are perhaps a little weak. Few documentaries about religious topics would receive this high of a rating from me. These are genuinely good. 300 minutes ( = 5 hours)

Item Code : QUES2937DVD. 2 Hours. Internationally-acclaimed and award-winning, The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World is like nothing you've ever seen before. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan and shot on the scale of a major motion picture, this dramatized program employs a cast of thousands, location filming, and digital imagery to recreate the ancient wonders as they appeared in their original glory! I.M. Pei leads a team of renowned experts who reveal how the wonders influenced modern architecture and construction design. The Pyramids of Giza, The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, The Statue of Zeus at Olympia, The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, The Colossus of Rhodes, and The Pharos of Alexandria were unbelievably created by human hands with simple tools in the Hellenistic world. Alexander the Great visited most of them during his lifetime and directly influenced the others--tragically dying in one and being buried in the shadow of another.
