This is a phenomenal DVD from the National Geographic Channel. You can't imagine what it took to build these buildings,the Colosseum,the Chartres Cathedral and the Great Pyramid of Giza. Just watching these buildings being designed on paper and going up is amazing. Only the National Geographic Channel can bring a program like this to life.
