Nefertiti & The Lost Dynasty

By Planet Knowledge
— 2 months ago

Over 3,000 years ago, they tore ancient Egypt apart. And then they vanished….Nefertiti, the perfect one – the legendary beauty – and her husband, Akhenaten, the radical king…This revolutionary couple would shake the foundations of Egypt as they set out to reinvent a civilisation. They threw out the old government, the old capital city, and even replaced the old gods. In less than 20 years they would turn Egypt on its head, and they themselves would disappear from history. Where did they end up? The debate has been raging for decades.

Now a brand new scientific investigation is about to begin. An international team, funded by National Geographic, is bringing state of the art CT scans to the Valley of the Kings, for only the second time in history, on the hunt for this mysterious family of pharaohs…. A family most famous for the little boy believed to be Akhenaten’s son – the son who would grow up to be King Tut. Now, they are trying to put together the pieces of his Egyptian dynasty. Using non-invasive, three dimensional volumetric imagery, they conduct a pharonic forensic investigation of a kind never before undertaken – tracking 21st century clues to a mystery from 1,300 BC.

The huge blocks of red sandstone standing amidst infinite space blend with incredible valleys, whose sides are lined with breath-taking colours. Thanks to the prodigious effects of erosion, nature here has created some of the world’s most fabulous scenery.

In the footsteps of the pioneers and gold-seekers, this Pierre Brouwers films steers us from encounter to discovery, as far as the final frontier city of San Francisco.

Discovering the World – Paris Past, Paris Present, Paris on the Move – Episode 167

By Planet Knowledge
— 2 months ago

The film constantly draws a parallel between modern and period images, going back as far as the early 20th century to show the evolution of Paris and the means of transport with which to discover the city. The early-day images are juxtaposed, not to say superimposed, with modern scenes so that the viewer has the impression of permanently being conveyed through time aboard a city on the move.

From the first sightseeing launches on the Seine to the new tram lines, not forgetting some strange encounters at disused metro stations or the foundations of the Gare de l’Est, this document is tinged with nostalgia and holds a number of surprises in store for all lovers of Paris.
