I'm sure it was. Irving Wallace wrote the orignal novel, and I
believe the movie was released as a TV mini-series. It featured some
snippets from non-canonical sourves, but overall, didn't strive to
completely unsettle orthodox faithmerely upset the timeline of its
perceived historical context.
As I alluded earlier, it's less a presentation of significant
discoveries, and more of a commetary on how easily people will allow
themselves to be dupedwhich is interesting enough in its own right,
though perhaps not over enough to tolerate three hours of it on VHS.
