A documentary on Egyptian tomb-robbing, done as deconstruction/re-enactment of a theoretical robbery, with analysis and conjecture by 'experts' (persons labeled with areas of expertise, no idea if they're real or actors). I kept thinking this would make an interesting actual movie, ie 'Ocean's Eleven' set in ancient Egypt. Possibly as a comedy, although I'm perhaps overly influenced by the 'mastermind' having quite a resemblance to Rowan Atkinson. I kept expecting Baldrick to turn up as one of the 'gang'.
Interesting enough, although somewhat choppy, due to the premise: they keep cutting from the re-enactment to the commenters.
