East and West - where does the power lie? Where does the future lie? How does China fit into the world? These were the questions that a young merchant from Venice was asking when he set out to discover the unknown East. His story, related in The Travels of Marco Polo, has shaped how the West has viewed the East ever since. Marco Polo's journey from Venice to the far reaches of the Mongol Empire started in 1271 and became a 20-plus year exploration of the great, conquered lands of the East. In this three-part series we retrace that physical journey today, looking at the people and places he visited some 700 years ago. The journey starts from Venice in Europe and continues through the Middle East, stopping at Acre and Jerusalem, passing through war-ravaged Baghdad and along the Silk Road. It travels into the vast deserts of present day Iran before entering China and the great Mongol Empire.
