Six programmes on the civilisations of Turkey Written and introduced by John Julius Norwich
4: The Fall of Byzantium
This week's programme traces the decline and fall of the most splendid and long-lived of all Christian empires -the Byzantine. LORD NORWICH describes its achievements, from the fantastic rock-churches of Cappadocia to the incomparable mosaics created in Constantinople just before the city fell to the invading Turks.
... the one that may most properly be called new is ' The Gates of Asia.' Untrodden territory from the point of view of television and the fresh-faced John Julius Norwich ... it is satisfying enough. (THE GUARDIAN)
Producer DAVID CHESHIRE
