This television documentary is one in a four-part series that tests theories regarding the architectural achievements of ancient civilizations. Based on archaeological evidence, scientists conduct physical reconstructions of these theories to see if they would have actually worked. The series is co-produced by Nova and BBC. In this installment, they test theories regarding the ancient world of Machu Picchu in Peru. Topics covered in this episode include present-day people building bridges out of grass fiber and how the ancient Incas built walls made of huge blocks of stone with such precision that each block fits tightly with the next. ~ Thomas Carpenter, Rovi

This bland documentary talks about nothing but how the Incas moved huge rocks from point a to point b, and about how they built bridges made out of grass. It was extremely shallow on content. I thought it would talk about who the Incas actually were, but nothing at all about that. I came away having an idea how to move a boulder and that's about it.
Film had valid and interesting info about said culture, with specific focus on movement of stones. Fairly short in length given the subject matter. I was expecting more of an overview about the Inca as a people.
