Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This four-part documentary series was aired in the United States by the History Channel cable network. Using a combination of location footage, interviews, and close-ups of rare artifacts, the series explored many of the mysteries and puzzles of ancient Egypt -- though not all of them were solved. Episode titles included "Cradle of Religions," "Sacred Space," "Death and Rebirth," and "Land of Magic." Debuting in America on April 2, 2002, Egypt: Land of the Gods was originally broadcast in two two-hour blocks, though the episodes were issued individually on VHS and DVD.
