DON'T BE FOOLED! This movie is NOT about what its title implies! It is NOT about what the synopsis says it is!
It might better be titled "Europe Comes to America." It's really about Europe and its problems at the time of Columbus, and how Columbus brought European culture and problems to America.
I feel duped! National Geographic must have been really desperate to get another title out there that the trusting public would pay money to see.
Pretty interesting program that attempts to explain the factors that led to the sweep of European culture in the New World, and the factors that set this up. Controversial, bold, and not totally accurate, but very well done, and explained in a manner that only National Geographic can. Recommended.
