UK, 2002, 50'

The BBC television programme “Horizon” has exclusive access to a stunning archaeological discovery –a magnificent ancient city of pyramids in Peru. The site has caused a sensation because it may be archaeology’s fabled Missing Link –“The Mother City”– a city from the very dawn of human civilisation. If it is, then it is threatening to overturn some of the our deeply held theories about why we first walked out of the wild and built advanced societies. The site is littered with fabulous finds. A lovingly buried body of a baby, intricately carved flutes made from condor bones, and indications that the people of this first civilisation took drugs and maybe even aphrodisiacs. Above all, this stirring and powerful film charts the epic tale of the rise of civilisation with beautiful imagery and state of the art computer graphics.
