Summary
This is a nine-part series telling the story of art from the dawn of human history to the present day, for the first time on a global scale. Specialist filming techniques capture the majestic scale of the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia, and pick out the exquisite detail of Michelangelo's Basilica of St Peter. Until now, these illuminating creations have been remote. Now you can immerse yourself in their awe-inspiring craftsmanship, as great masterpieces are brought closer and made clearer than ever before. An epic blockbuster, Civilisations shows how art defines the human experience. It's a story of passion and struggle, introducing a new generation to classic works created across the continents
