Judge David Johnson walked in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, until he hit an overpass and gave up.
A remarkable journey through an ancient civilization.
From the big thinkers at Athena, Alexander's Lost World is a slick-looking six-part documentary miniseries following the hoof-prints of Alexander the Great's conquering horde, as they traipsed through modern day Afghanistan and the surrounding terrain. Your host is David Adams, the renowned photojournalist, who is more than happy to put himself in mortal danger to bring you sweeping vistas of sand and rocks.

As for the DVDs, Athena/Acorn offers up a very clean 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, Dolby 2.0 Stereo, deleted scenes, a photo gallery, a text-only bio of Alexander, and a hefty 16-page viewer's guide.
There you go. Alexander's Lost World is a must-own, if you consider yourself a fan of Alexander and Afghanistan.
