"Covering 5,000 miles, passing through 13 countries and crossing some of the most dramatic landscapes on the planet, this is the fascinating story of the lucrative trade route which changed the course of civilization forever. In this extraordinary series, Dr Sam Willis explores how the fortunes of the West were shaped by the East. In the final episode of this series tracing the story of the most famous trade route in history, Dr Sam Willis continues his journey west in Iran. Following an ancient caravan route through Persia's deserts, he visits a Zoroastrian temple where a holy fire was burned for 1,500 years, and Esfahan, one of the Silk Road's architectural jewels and rival to Sam's next destination - Istanbul. In the ancient capital of Byzantium, Sam discovers how the eastern Roman Empire was ruled through silk and how Venetian merchants cashed in on the wealth and trade it generated. Sam's last stop takes him full circle to Venice”-- Container.
