Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose: Egypt, Quest for the Lord of the Nile

 (TV) (2009)

Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose: Egypt, Quest for the Lord of the Nile Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Voyage up the Nile River for an Egyptian adventure unlike any other in high definition. Experience the searing heat of the desert and the thriving modern cities. See Alexandria and Cairo, go inside the pyramids at Giza, explore the chambers and tombs in the Valley of the Kings, and discover why Egypt’s culture is bound to the river and its creatures — specifically the crocodile god, Sobek. Soak up the modern culture of an ancient civilization, and join explorer Richard Bangs as he searches history and Lake Nasser for the Lord of the Nile in Egypt.

Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose: Egypt, Quest for the Lord of the Nile Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

When dealing with a niche label like Topics Entertainment, you might initially think you won't be getting stellar image quality. That thought may indeed advance when you see that this release is encoded via the relatively old MPEG-2 codec. And yet, I was consistently surprised at the sharpness of the image in Egypt: Quest for the Lord of the Nile. This is a remarkable looking Blu-ray, full of crisp detail and some especially brilliantly saturated color. The gradations of hues in the different water scenes, for example, are amazing, giving the viewer everything from deep cobalt blues to some luscious aquamarines and teals. Detail on closeups of the crocodiles (especially those weird eyes of theirs) is similarly remarkable, with the scaly hides of the creatures virtually palpable through the screen. Don't let the label or the codec fool you, this is a very crisp and clean looking Blu-ray.


Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose: Egypt, Quest for the Lord of the Nile Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Audiophiles will probably groan to see the only option is an LPCM 2.0 track, but the fact is almost all of this documentary consists of Bangs either talking on screen or providing voiceover. There's very little ambient sounds, other than water sounds in the boats he travels on and the splish splash of little (or sometimes not so little) crocodile feet. There is one brief moment early in this piece, when Bangs is on a little rowboat, where you will hear a marked decrease in fidelity which I assume is due to remote recording capabilities. The rest of the time, this is a sharp sounding soundtrack with Bangs' narration front and center and the appealing underscore mixed very well into the proceedings.
