The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

The Seven Wonders of the World were staggeringly audacious impositions on our planet. They were also brilliant adventures of the mind, test cases for the reaches of human imagination. Now only the great pyramid remains fully standing, yet the scale and majesty of these seven architectural wonders still enthral us today.

Historian and broadcaster Bettany Hughes will walk us through the landscapes of both ancient and modern time and ask why we wonder, create and choose to remember the wonder of others. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World reinforces the exciting and nourishing notion that humans can make the impossible happen.
