Civilisation Under Attack on BBC

Posted on: July 1, 2015 by

Last night BBC 4 aired a programme hosted by journalist Dan Cruickshank entitled Civilisation Under Attack, charting the impact of the Islamic State (or ISIS) on antiquities in regions under the group’s control in Iraq and Syria. The programme covered the destruction of the site at Nimrud and of objects in the Mosul Museum, and included a number of illucidating interviews.

The episode is available for the next 29 days for those with access to the BBC iPlayer: see here.
