Iraq is sort of hidden to most westerners due to obvious reasons. This documentary was a good look into some of the archeological sites and a view of pieces previously hidden due to the Iraqi war. A bit too much time was spent on the "drama" of pumping out a basement, but all and all a nice episode.

Why is National Geographic, a reputable brand, wasting peoples money with a "documentary" that interviews UFO abductees? There is some real science in this episode, but there is also too much, none sense, BS... UFO stories. Anyone that has done any study or interest in the science of exobiology knows that UFOs and flying saucers visiting Earth are impossible. Even at the speed at light from the nearest star to Earth it will take far too long for any life form to travel to Earth, and that assumes that there is anything even interesting here on Earth for extraterrestrials to care about. The earliest radio signals from Earth, haven't even traveled far enough in space to even be heard by any extraterrestrials. On top of all that, there exists not one piece of tangible evidence of any extraterrestrial visitations of the third kind. Seems for every story about UFO abduction, there never is a photograph, never a video clip, never any evidence what so ever. It is nothing more then a modern myth. In ancient times, people saw angles, today they see aliens... its all the same dementia.

That doesn't mean that life else where in the Cosmos doesn't exist, let's be clear on another point, it surely does, Im just pointing out that they have not, can not and will not visit the Earth. Nobody even knows we are here?! We are just one little rocky planet orbiting an average star in the quiet suburbs of one average galaxy that has more stars in it, then there are grains of sand on the planet Earth... and THAT is a fact. I refer you to the Drake Equation to better understand the things you really need to know, when considering the notion of exobiology.

Thanks for luring me into your content with your brand National Geographic and then wasting my money with childish disregard to the scientific facts surrounding the topic, shallow UFO foolery and a $4 rip-off.

There is another documentary that features this story. Sunken ship and all the treasures found. The company who went looking for the sunken treasure was Odyssey. The quality is not HD but the content and the narration makes up for its lack in HD quality. Very enjoyable documentary.
