Around the World in 80 Treasures is a riveting story of adventure and the pursuit of knowledge.
Dan Cruickshank's quest for this enlightening TV series is to tell the story of civilisation through the greatest of man's achievements. It is also the story of his travels, and who and what he meets along the way. Whether standing before the solemn heads of Easter Island, investigating the mysterious Nazca lines in Peru or the magnificent temple of Borobodur in Java, Dan is never less than fascinating about the origins, construction, mysteries and vicissitudes of each of these monuments to the great civilisations of the world.
Do they live up to expectation? Have they been left in ruin, or over-restored? Along the way, Dan reveals his most intimate thoughts and feelings about the people he meets, the ups and downs of the journey, perils, joys, and the ongoing relationships formed on the road.

Five stars for his presentation, the quality of filming and the idea itself,to travel and see objects.One of my favourite series of all time.
It arrived quickly & I pretty much went on a Dan Cruickshank binge - I watched all 4 discs within 2 days and when I slept, I dreamt of far-off exotic architecture & market places & of beautiful man-made treasures!
This series is so interesting and I will definitely re-watch it, over and over again. So it has been money well spent, in my case! :)
