Around The World In 80 Treasures
  • Description

    Dan Cruickshank's worldwide quest for mankind's greatest achievements.

    Architectural historian Dan Cruickshank embarks on a five-month, 34-country world tour visiting his selection of the eighty greatest buildings, artworks and other man-made treasures that define human civilization. This energetic global treasure hunt takes in the Parthenon, Machu Picchu, King Tut's burial mask, a samurai sword and even a Volkswagen Beetle with ventures as far afield as Easter Island, the Mud City of Chan Chan, space age Shanghai and the temple of Borobodur in Java.

    In revealing the stories behind the treasures, Dan comes face to face with the legacies of great ancient civilisations, learning something of human aspiration, about the secrets of life and death, and ultimately about himself.

Around the World in 80 Treasures

I imagine not everyone likes the very typical way of enthusiasm Dan Cruickshank wants to share with the viewer, but I for one am all for it. The choice of the 80 'treasures' is of course very subjective to say the least and you could easily argue for many other wonderful places or inventions around the world, but Dan easily wins you over for the Samurai sword as a treasure as well as the more conventional, but magnificent choice, the ruins of Machu Picchu. Be careful though, because once you have finished an episode you'll be beguiled to watch another one, and another one.. And after this great series youll be interested to learn about some other enthusiastic places Dan wants to share with all of us (his architectural wonders, some UK country houses, Tibet etc). Heartily recommended by a non-UK viewer!
