LOS ANGELES (March 28, 2007) - The Parents Television Council™ has awarded its prestigious Seal of Approval™ to the DVD Greece: Secrets of the Past.  The Seal of Approval is presented to outstanding DVDs, films and television shows that do not contain sex, violence or profanity.


"Greece: Secrets of the Past is exactly what DVDs should be: beautifully produced, very entertaining and educational," PTC™ President Tim Winter said. "This is a production the entire family can enjoy."


"We are very pleased to receive the Seal of Approval because it reaffirms our mission to produce enriching, educational films for people of all ages," said Greg MacGillivray, president of MacGillivray Freeman Films and director of Greece: Secrets of the Past.  "Whether you're a young student learning about history or a grandmother looking for a film to enjoy with her grandchildren, Greece has something for everyone."


Greece: Secrets of the Past is produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films and presented by Alex G. Spanos in association with the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Museum Film Network and with major funding from the National Science Foundation and MacGillivray Freeman Films Educational Foundation.  The film was originally created for exhibition in IMAX® theatres.  It is still being shown in select IMAX theatres and other giant screen theatres throughout the country.  The production is narrated by Nia Vardalos, star and writer of the hit film, My Big Fat Greek Wedding.


MacGillivray Freeman Films is the world's largest and most experienced producer and distributor of IMAX® theatre films, including Everest, Coral Reef Adventure and two Academy Award®-nominated films, Dolphins and The Living Sea.  The company's films are known for their artistry and successful blend of education and entertainment, as well as their celebration of science and the natural world.
