Summary
"This colorful program is filled with modern footage illustrating the rich cultural diversity of the Middle East and Central Asia. From a bustling marketplace filled with exotic foods, to a thriving city built on the oil trade, each environment is filled with an interesting mix of people. Their history, religions and customs blend in this amazing "crossroads of the world." The program begins with a brief history describing how various ethnic groups settled in the region. The Middle East was home to the first human civilization, along with the first known written language and the earliest form of modern agriculture. Developments of the 20th century are discussed, as are Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Whether farmers, artisans, merchants, or business workers, the people of the region create a rich landscape of lifestyles. The program illustrates, the contrast between rural traditions and modern changes is ever present, helping to shape a region that continues to grow and develop."--Online catalog
