Does not iclude Greek Islands (I was dissapointed that Ithaka, Krete, etc were left out). Does include Corinth.
The video should have included the modern lighting of the olympic flame ceremony.
The video could have had normal color footage, instead of that faded black and white footage for the ancient scene recreates.
At the end of the other video about Egypt, it says that there is a lot known, and unknown, about ancient Egypt. It would also apply to ancient Greece (and so on).
This series of 3 should also be available on DVD.
