Synopsis

NOVA: Secrets of the Parthenon
As originally screened on PBS's NOVA series, the documentary special Secrets of the Parthenon carries viewers on a detailed exploration of the titular landmark - one of Ancient Greece's most renowned architectural wonders. As the program points out, the Parthenon has fallen prey, over the centuries, to every type of conceivable destruction - from earthquakes to extensive vandalism to looting and arson. Yet it somehow survived intact through the early years of the 21st century. This documentary examines methods used by the Ancient Greeks to achieve such remarkable architectural precision, the techniques that enabled the Greeks to erect the structure so quickly, and the late 20th-early 21st century restorative efforts of the Acropolis Restoration Project. It also concludes with an incredible historical secret unveiled when a shaft of light discloses a hidden carving. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
