“We preserve what we love.
We love what we understand.
We understand what we have learnt.”
Under this motto, UNESCO has been protecting since 1972 as World
Heritage meanwhile more than 800 unique natural and cultural sites
throughout the world, such as the Taj Mahal in India, Australia’s
Kakadu National Park or the world’s first iron bridge in Great Britain.
This treasury also serves as the guideline for the documentary series
“Treasures of the World” which tells inspiring stories about the
heritage of mankind in fascinating pictures. The famous Summer Palace
in China, the Serengeti
wildlife reserve or the ruined Inca city of Machu Picchu – altogether
300 particularly significant sites worldwide have been portrayed since
1994 in films of unparalleled vividness and beauty. The “Treasures of
the World” not only convey the most important information about the
sites; they also capture their spirit, thus providing the viewers with
completely new insights.
