Re-visit the life, accomplishments, and vision of 
Leonardo da Vinci with
The History Channel special presentation,

airing Sunday, December 4th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

     The History Channel continues to improve upon the entertainment level of each new documentary that it produces. It is obvious this production is well funded as its re-creational footage is superb in authentic art direction, costuming and casting of historical characters. For the most part, the production pays tribute to the life of one of the most profound humans beings that ever existed. By utilizing the "hook" of the popular code, the program artfully and for the most part accurately describes DaVinci's life.

     By using the theme of a personal code in which DaVinci led his life the lay viewer gains great insight into his personality. Although there seems to some speculative aspects to the overall story,  the program is a great source of information about the man and his time period. Overall, this program is entertaining and for the most part historically accurate information. The History Channel has found a formula in its storytelling that works for almost all audiences.

     We give this program 4 of 5 Herodoti
