[edit] Information

The Delights of Turkey is a fast-moving adventure around eastern Turkey. Producer-presenter Greg Grainger joins a team of motorbike riders as they explore Turkey's exotic blend of Asia and Europe, from belly dancers and cave cities, to ancient Roman settlements, and cliff sides of calcium.

Highlights include:

  • The dance of the whirling dervishes, with its ten dancers, known as Semazens
  • The entrancing city of Istanbul, with its massive mosques, including the Blue Mosque, with its gleaming blue tiles, and St Sophia, the greatest church in the entire early Christian kingdom.
  • The war-time hot-spot of Gallipoli, where school children pay homage to war heroes from their home town.
  • The legendary Trojan horse.
  • A hot air balloon ride over the home of the Troglodites.
  • The production of Turkish delights.
  • The Roman ruins of Ephesus, providing a good example of what it was like to live in a Roman city.
  • The thermal spas at Pammukale, with rejuvenating pools & strange formations.
  • The moonscape settlement of Cappadocia, with its numerous underground cities, and home to thousands who still live in caves.
  • The Turkish capital of Ankara with its imposing limestone Anitkabir - the mausoleum of the founder of modern Turkey, Kemal Ataturk.
  • Safranbolu, a small town of well-preserved Ottoman houses and home to the growers of that exotic and very expensive spice, saffron.
