Michael Wood goes in search of four of the most famous myths in the world: Shangri-la, the Golden Fleece, the Queen of Sheba, and the Holy Grail.
These four romantic journeys take him to some of the remotest and most exciting places on earth including Western Tibet, the mountains of Georgia and the Caucasus, the plains of Southern Iraq, to the coasts of Ethiopia Yemen and the Horn of Africa. Michael asks the question: why do such legends still captivate us today? Over the last twenty years, from In Search of the Trojan War to his epic journeys in the footsteps of Alexander the Great and the Conquistadors, Michael Wood has taken the TV audience, and the reader, on romantic and compelling journeys into the past.
