Hi....ehmmmm...Robert, Wink
I have taught the same topic and I can suggest a video about the seven wonders of the ancient world. See one of the best versions here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvYV12onOFY

Students may even prepare a presentation about the ancient wonders.

If you would like to watch a full movie about ancient Rome you could watch Gladiator.  There are a couple of other good movies about ancient civilization, the only problem there is no speech they would be, Apocalypto about the Mayan civilization and Quest for Fire which is about early man.  There is also a movie about ancient China called Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
 
Like the others mentioned there are a lot options with You Tube.  There are a lot of documentaries on ancient civilizations there.

I personally don īt like movies about ancient cultures there is usually too much fiction in them.

In addition they are too long for one class. I prefer documentaries due to their more educational content.
Mayan:
Aztecs:
