    Nova [#4005] Building Pharaoh's Chariot Around 3,600 years ago, reliefs in Egyptian tombs and temples depicted pharaohs and warriors proudly riding into battle on horse-drawn chariots. Some historians claim that the chariot launched a technological and strategic revolution, and was the secret weapon behind Egypt's greatest era of conquest known as the New Kingdom. But was the Egyptian chariot really a revolutionary design? How decisive a role did it play in the bloody battles of the ancient world? In this film, a team of archaeologists, engineers, woodworkers and horse trainers join forces to build and test two highly accurate replicas of Egyptian royal chariots. They discover astonishingly advanced features, including spoked wheels, springs, shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and even a convex shaped rear mirror, leading one of them to compare the level of design to the engineering standards of 1930's-era Buicks! By driving our pair of replicas to their limits in the desert outside Cairo, NOVA's experts test the claim that the chariot marks a crucial turning point in ancient military history. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Secrets of the Dead [#1205H] Ultimate Tut Ninety years ago in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, the greatest archaeological find in history was made: the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb and its golden treasures.

This two-hour special combines the latest evidence from a team of archaeologists, anatomists, geologists and Egyptologists to build the ultimate picture of Tutankhamen. Blending 3D graphics, stylized reconstruction and action-adventure forensic investigation, the programs take a 21st-century approach to ancient history, following new scientific research and presenting fresh insights into how Tutankhamen was buried, why his tomb was the only one to remain intact and the enduring enigma around how he died. duration 1:53:22   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Bob offers to teach her, but first, she needs to choose an instrument. Suddenly, Grover appears carrying a small salesman suitcase filled with different instruments. He takes out a violin, and Bob explains that the violin's sounds come from the bow being pulled across the four strings, making them vibrate. He explains that vibrations make sounds and gives an example of our vocal cords vibrating when we talk. Grover asks Abby if she would like to buy the violin, but Abby would like to see more instruments first. Grover pulls out a trombone, and Bob explains that you have to make a vibration with your lips while blowing air into the trombone in order for it to make sounds. Abby is still not ready to make a decision and asks to see another instrument. As Grover rummages through his suitcase, Abby notices the two timpani drums set up in the orchestra area, and Bob suggests that she try to figure out which part of the drums vibrate. After investigating different parts of the drum, Abby finds that the top part is what vibrates. Abby gives it a try with the mallets and decides that the timpani drums are the instrument for her! Bob calls the rest of the kids back from break to work on a new song. With everyone playing an instrument, Grover feels left out, but Abby points out that he can use his voice as an instrument. Now they are all able to play and sing the new song together! duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
