[edit] Information

While London was a swamp, and Paris, a fishing village, Istanbul, then known as Constantinople, reigned for a thousand years as the world's richest city. At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, it amassed more gold than both continents combined, and safeguarded Christendom's most sacred relics, including the True Cross and heads of the Apostles. The largest walls ever created protected Istanbul's treasures from endless waves of invaders. Immerse yourself in the city that has endured more warfare than any other place on Earth: Istanbul. The world's oldest city, which spans the continents of Europe and Asia, holds many stories of intrigue. Spies, invaders and some of history's most diabolical minds plotted to seize Istanbul, and with it, rule the world. Relive the crushing crusade led by a blind and vengeful Venetian ruler. Enter Topkapi Palace and meet the harem beauty who seduced an emperor and brought down his kingdom. Board the Orient Express, carrying a Nazi time bomb meant for a high-ranking British diplomat. Uncover the terrors of the Cold War and the movements of Soviet double-agent, Kim Philby. Intrigue in Istanbul is your ticket to one of the most subversive, decadent and magnificent journeys in history. Written and directed by James Barrat Produced for Discovery Communications by EMS Productions, The Netherlands
