Secrets of the Dead

As reviewed in The Scout Report:
http://www.pbs.org/wnet/secrets/

Produced by member station WNET, PBS's "Secrets of the Dead" is a fascinating look into the "most iconic moments in history to debunk myths and shed new light on past events." The team of experts on the show uses a wide range of techniques, including historical examination and forensic science to challenge established wisdom and also turn a spotlight on forgotten mysteries. Visitors to the site can watch many of the previous programs, and they feature a visit to the royal tomb of Pharaoh Psusennes I, a look into Winston Churchill's decision to bomb the French Navy, and the Battle of Stalingrad. The site also includes a number of extras, including background essays and production notes for each episode. Visitors can also view a list of the "Most Popular" episodes, check out viewer comments, and add tags to episodes of note. [KMG]
