    "DVD not up to standard of NG.

    About Me Casual Viewer

      • 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.
