The Hittites


A 2 1/2 hour documentary is showing this evening on the Smithsonian Channel:
The Hittites - Smithsonian Channel

The Hittites

How can a civilization that heavily influenced our language, legal system, mythology, and the Bible possibly be forgotten? Through thrilling reenactments and on-location interviews with world-renowned experts, we examine the world of the Hittites, a dynasty that, 3,500 years ago, vanquished armies, toppled empires, and fought off plagues-yet somehow got lost in the annals of history.

Is this the Turkish production?


If so, you can watch in Netflix (must pay extra). I believe it is in English subs.

Or If you speak Turkish, you can watch the full movie in parts on YouTube.

I don't believe so, but I wouldn't know for sure...it was in english.

I enjoyed it quite a bit, so if it is, kudos to the producers.

After a close look at the picture, I realize the man in the movie poster is Fikret Kuşkan, a Turkish actor. He is listed in the cast of the production along with Haluk Bilginer and Sanem Çelik. The director is Tolga Örnek. I see Jeremy Irons dubbed the documentary. I had watched it when it came out. Quality production.

Hem, I read it too fast, and I thought I saw Ron Jeremy dubbed the documentary.
