This page links to videos about Byzantium that I have found on the web. Please take a look.

Byzantium: The Lost Empire – a five part series

BBC’s Chronicle – The Fall of Constantinople

John Julius Norwich (who wrote the excellent and accessible trilogy on the history of Byzantium) tells the dramatic story of the fall of Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire, followed by the rise of the Ottoman Turks in the 15th Century. Using monuments in Istanbul to show the formidable artistic and intellectual achievements of the Byzantines, Norwich vividly describes the last scenes of Greek Orthodox Christianity from within the Hagia Sophia.

    I am producer of the 5-episode documentary on the Long Anastasian Wall. We would like to install some short 3- 4- minutes promo of the film in this site, which we highly appreciate. How we could do it?
