    Monumental Treasures Of The World, Episode 3 - DVD.
    Cosmos Global Documentaries. 52 Minutes. Various Locations In Italy, China, Thailand, France, India & Nepal The Colosseum Of Rome is the most monumental and impressive amphitheatre in the world. It is thought that its construction began in 72 AD by command of Emperor Vespasianus. Here, the Roman's desire for outrageous performance and violent entertainment were fully satisfied. In turn the Emperor's popularity grew with these public exhibitions. Sadly, at the fall of the Roman Empire this gigantic complex fell into disrepair. Close to Badaling the Great Wall Of China extends majestically across misty mountains. It is the largest Man-made structure in the world. It is believed that the original sections of the Great Wall were built in eight hundred and eighty eight B.C. At that time the wall consisted of compressed clay and various palisades. The wall was erected in order to protect the country from invasion from the North. The Great Wall Of China is a wonder of the world within the `Middle Empire' that continues to fascinate all those who see it. Most sightseers travel by boat to see the fascinating Wat Arun Temple that is located close to the shore of the Chao Phraya in the historic heart of Bangkok. The seventy four metre high prang is the main and most visible element of the temple complex and is one of Bangkok's major landmarks. In the nineteenth century King Rama The Second was responsible for the extension of the originally much smaller and more modest temple tower. With its historic buildings the eighty metre high granite mound of Mont-Saint-Michel in France's Brittany is like something from a fairy tale. This spectacular building unites sea, earth and sky and powerful fortifications surround the small town and the abbey at the top of the rock, remnants of Mont-Saint-Michel's dramatic past. Kathmandu is a metropolis in the heart of the kingdom of Nepal. A land of snow-white mountains and home of the gods, a melting pot of races and religions that is located between China and India. A magical, mystical, Shangri-La. It was only a few decades ago that ancient Nepal opened up its borders. Until then, due to the command of the ruling Gurkha Dynasty the `Home of the Divine' was totally cut off from the outside world.

    Monumental Treasures Of The World, Episode 1 - DVD.
    Cosmos Global Documentaries. 52 Minutes. Various Locations In Peru, Portugal, China, Spain, Greece & Thailand High in the Peruvian Andes there is a place of sun worship and mysterious ritual, Machu Picchu. Even today the Lost City of the Inca's is like an amazing castle with steep ravines on three sides and on the fourth, a protective mountain range. The warm light of the first rays of sunshine penetrates through the evening mist and, as with each morning, the mysterious, weather-beaten ruined city rises once again. Through entrances of sculptured stone blocks "Guard Houses" appear. Walls and embankments seem to defend the inner ruins, with its temples and places of cultural interest, from unwelcome guests. From seamless stone blocks it seems that even today, five hundred years after being built, its flourishing life of yesteryear wants to reveal itself yet again. The Torre De Belem is one of the main landmarks of the Portuguese metropolis of Lisbon. Equally, it is a reminder of the importance of Portugal as a military and naval power in past centuries. Hundreds of sea voyages to India and Africa embarked from the mouth of the river Tejo, spreading word of Portugal's new-found glory around the world. The influences of many countries are to be found in the construction of this fortification. Byzantine, Venetian and also Arabian, even Indian building elements combine in the Torre de Belem in monumental Manuelism style. The famous discoverer Marco Polo called the Chinese city of Suzhou, The Venice of the East. But unlike in Italy, countless bicycles are part of daily life in this modern city. However, Suzhou is more well known for its gardens. Beautiful bridges span across its canals while run down houses indicate the meagre financial resources of their inhabitants. The city's more impressive and elegant buildings date back to Suzhou's long and glorious past, such as the town gate and wall of Pan Men. In southern Spain, majestically, yet mysteriously, the legendary Alhambra proudly rises above Granada's atmospheric old town. Curiously, the history of the Alhambra began with the gradual decline of the Islamic empire of the Moorish, Al-Andalus. After C?rdoba, the former centre of power of the Caliphs fell into the hands of the Christians in 1238, and Granada became the country's new capital city.
