Language: English
Available in:»English»Français

A unique documentary in its wealth and depth of information. The original documents were filmed by local television teams of nine countries in Central Asia as the expedition, organized within UNESCO's programme 'Integral Study of the Silk Roads: Route of Dialogue' retraced the 2,000-year-old 20,000 km silk and spices route linking East and West and thus ideas, religions, people, products and cultures in both directions. John Lawton composed later a fascinating kaleidoscope, where, from Sian in China to Constantinople at the doors of Europe, the legendary and the present meet
