TLC, Discovery and History channels rule! If you like the roman empire, they had a episode on, mainly all this week, about constantinople/Byzantine/Istanbol. The orignial city was forgotten about and the current city was built on top. Its mainly still there, like nothing changed. You can walk around there, underground... it's SO cool.
If your into engineering, there's Modern Mavels, Extreme Engineering, Engineering Rome... etc.
I think discovery also has Going Tribal. Adventurious Brit (pale white) going into the jungle or planes or where ever and integrating himself into 3rd world coutry tirbes. He had to drink blood from a cow once....
But yea, sorry I missed that show, I actually did want to see it.
