    This is actually a post to a previous thread.

    PBS/WNET has a long-running series, Secrets of the Dead, that features episodes that you might find interesting to view, especially now with many confined to home.

    Here's a partial listing of previous programs. Some of these link will expire in a month or so. (Cited

    Just finished watching the episode on Cleopatra. Fascinating and much disappointed that it ended where it did. Looking forward to a follow-up.

    Thank you lots for this.
    Is the one on King Arthur's kingdom the one about the recent excavations at Tintagel Castle? That one was absolutely fascinating --put a completely different cultural spin on the early phases of Anglo-Saxon settlement, and the amazing sophistication of the Britons around Cornwall.

    "Gangsters Gold" is available on on-line and also this month on various PBS stations. Check your local listings.

    Looks like old gangster Dutch Schultze may have hidden $50 MM in gold coins (Saint-Gaudens !!!??) and Gold Certificates in Upstate NY.

    Now that's a hoard I would pay up to own ! :D
