Info for Ancient Egyptian enthusiasts

For those that receive the TV channel and are interested in such things, a 'new' programme is being aired tonight at 9-30pm on the QUEST channel titled 'Out of Egypt', which is a documentary about Ancient Egyptian archaeology, structures, mummies, etc.

Thks KV

Just checking the terminology - Is this of interest to ancient people like me that are Egyptian enthusiasts, or enthusiasts of Ancient Egypt?

Now I need to go and see if BT-Vision or Freeview has that channel!

You are right there eLaReF, LoL, it would have been more 'correct' to title the thread 'info for Ancient Egypt enthusiasts' but, you get my drift, anyway.

Apologies the programme on the Quest channel at 9 p.m. I've found is actually on virgin 172 and not 179 as quoted in my newspaper.

I can see why this was called 'Out of Egypt' she seemed to be everywhere except Egypt very disappointing.

agree with you Brian,

thats why they called it Out of Egypt, most of it was out of Egypt, the advert said it was about Luxor,

Well, virtually nothing about Luxor OR Egypt in that episode, quite disappointing really.

It DID live up to it's title 'Out of Egypt' though, as virtually all the footage shown was of places that were - 'out of Egypt'. Hopefully future episodes will be better and more Egypt orientated.

And just incase anyone else was wondering (as I was) about the many references of 'BCE', in respect of a point in time, as opposed to BC (before Christ) it would seem that 'political correctness' has made the term BC redundant, as it may be 'offensive' to non-Christians, so has been replaced with 'BCE' which stands for 'Before the Common Era'. Whether or not the Common Era begins at year '0000' I'm not entirely sure. Hope that helps.
