Pros

    Cons

    • Disappointing
    • Not What I Expected
    • Poor Visual Effects

    Best Uses

      This DVD about Rome was not up to standards expected from Nat. Geo. products. I thought I would recommend it for family use where there are grandchildren interested in the history of Greek and Roman influences. Not in good taste nor of value to adults or children. I would like to return this DVD - not valued by me personally nor to give as an educational gift.
