Also here in Italy we discuss about the truthfulness of the infos which are given us by tv programmes...And we agree that lots of them are fake!
I think that this way of "inform" peple (with mistery and spooky things) is only based on the desire of a larger audience and not by other things...
So we don't usually "learn" by tv programmes, but we use the infos that we receive by them in order to make a research about them
something good in this bad information!
I wish I had correctly expressed my ideas.
PS The fact that the archaeologists and egyptologist is very bad...I think they should "protect" the idea of a good intormation for the audience...not the interests connected with money!
