Boasting unique access and state-of-the-art technology, host Bettany Hughes lifts the lid on the most remarkable treasures of civilisation to investigate the story of humanity over six fabulous hours. In the first two episodes, Bettany travels from Elizabeth II’s paradise isle, Malta – exploring shipwrecks, temples, and underground labyrinths – to Olympia, Sparta, Epidaurus, and even the palace of Alexander the Great in Greece, unearthing the best finds from unfolding excavations. With new episodes exploring the Mediterranean Islands, Gibraltar, Istanbul and Arabia available later this year, Treasures With Bettany Hughes is armchair travel at its most vivid and memorable, championing what ordinary people throughout time have achieved through the sheer force of will, inspiration and collaboration.
