Time Life’s Lost Civilizations – Tibet: The End of Time Narrated by Sam Waterston. DESCRIPTION: VHS: 48 minutes. Publisher: Time-Life Video & Television; (1995). Isolated within the towering sanctuary of the Himalayas, Tibet developed a culture unique in the history of world civilization. Steeped in the mystical ideals of Buddhism, the Tibetans centered their lives on selfless altruism and the perception of the world as an endlessly repeating cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Now, journey to the top of the world as this real life Shangri-la collides head-on with the ruthless realities of the modern age. And encounter a civilization that today is not yet lost, but balanced on the verge of collapse, facing what literally may be “the end of time”. Traversing the highest mountain passes on Earth enter a kingdom so remote it was virtually unknown to outsiders until recent times. Experience an enigmatic way of life that challengers the very concept of western civilization. Discover how, as the world’s last surviving theocracy, Tibetans voluntarily abandon their warlike past to worship their ruler, the Dalai Lama, as the living manifestation of god on Earth. And witness the outside world’s impact on a people totally devoted to the quest for peaceful coexistence, inner knowledge, and the ultimate spiritual bliss of nirvana. Above all, see how the great arc of civilization’s rise and fall is more than an artifact of history’s distant past, but a living process that continues today in this ethereal, otherworldly mountain domain. CONDITION: Brand New, still Sealed in Wrap. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR JACKET DESCRIPTION(S) AND FOR PAGES OF PICTURES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER, PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Never before could you get this close to 7,000 years of history. Digital effects technology and dramatizations re-create rituals and events, from the bloodletting of Maya kings and a pharaoh's last journey to the secret pleasures of a Roman empress. Original location cinematography in 25 countries takes you from Cuzco in Peru to Petra in Jordan, from ancient Mesopotamia to modern Tibet. Computer graphics restore Egypt's pyramids and the Great Wall of China. Part 1: Mesopotamia: return to Eden. Part 2: Ancient Egypt: quest for immortality. Part 3: Aegean: legacy of Atlantis. Part 4: Greece: a moment of excellence. Part 5: China: dynasties of power. Part 6: Rome: the ultimate empire. Part 7: The Maya: the blood of kings. Part 8: The Inca: secrets of the ancestors. Part 9: Africa: a history denied. Part 10: Tibet: the end of time. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: These full cast productions with sound effects and music will bring history to life in your imagination. Adapted from the highly respected Time Life Books series "Lost Civilizations", viewers of all ages will enjoy these journeys to the lands of “lost civilizations”. REVIEW: This introduction to Tibet presents some breathtaking scenery. The focus on barley and Tibet's dependency on yaks at first seems like an odd starting point considering the country's tragic history. Tibet has been illegally occupied by China since their invasion in 1949 and His Holiness the Dalai Lama was forced into exile in 1959. This is noted as a written prologue, and then in it is in the latter part of the video that it is covered. Certainly China's effect on Tibet's ecosystem is worth documenting, and this is where William Bacon, described as a three time Emmy Award-winning cinematographer and producer, seems most comfortable. Strip mining, clear cutting, and nuclear waste are among the problems facing modern-day Tibet. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: 1995 saw the release of a new series, "Lost Civilizations". Originally aired on NBC, Time-Life has released the series on VHS video. Episode 1, "Egypt: Quest for Immortality", begins the series. A very good documentary series, and this episode in particular is quite excellent. REVIEW: Very informative and entertaining. Tells of the major ancient civilizations in chronological order. Wonderfully made to be able to show to middle school students and be entertaining for adults. A “perfect 10” documentary. I always ship books, video and audio recordings via Media Mail in a padded mailer. This video recording is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). The shipment will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the video tape in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give LARGE discounts (averaging $5 per item) for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
