Wow! Spoken Latin & a good documentary too!

The docu is, "Nat Geo's Battle of Phillipi".
Copious spoken Latin throughout, especially by the Antony character.

Now to be brutally frank, I probably would have trouble discerning Latin from Italian
as I am a Newbie. But still I thought heard enough "est"s and Roma versus Romani to
call it legit. Maybe the better students can confirm for me. Overall is was well done
and I enjoyed it a lot. So check it out!

The Latin here is definitely legit, and it's pretty cool that they decided to go the extra mile for their program. The pronunciation standard varies a bit with the speaker, so Antony pronounces ce and ci as [tse] and [tsi], which is how it is taught in northern and eastern Europe.
