This program explores the desert and the Bedouins who live there; for since time immemorial Syrian society and culture has been determined by the Bedouins and the city-dwellers.
The ancient cultures that developed along the banks of the Euphrates, such as the Mari, are as distant in time from the heyday of Palmyra as the antique culture of Palmyra is from our day and age.
Crac de Chevaliers, one of the best preserved medieval fortresses, is an important testament to the age of the crusaders.
Also, in a valley near this fortress lies the renowned Cloister of St. George.
