The files below are snippets drawn from the "Down from the Sky" video. More will be posted soon.
To keep file sizes down, these videos were saved in wmv format. The full DVD is of much higher quality.
#1 Introduction & The Arrival
A brief background is presented to provide context. Then the video begins: Life on Earth takes a new turn as an alien spacecraft crashes into the shallow waters in the Middle East. This file features one of the musical's first songs, "There goes the Neighborhood", sung from the perspective of the indigenous animals.
Having realized that it will not be possible to extract enough gold from the Middle-Eastern waters, the Marduks' chief scientist, Enki, flies over all the Earth until he finds a location that has abundant gold deposits. This location is in the steamy jungles of southern Africa. Unfortunately, the gold is far below the surface and will have to be dug out of the ground by hand. The astronauts are pressed to this onerous task by their leaders. It is not long before a rebellion is brewing.
