''I first travelled to Istanbul 30 years ago - and was immediately enraptured. This metropolis has been a cornerstone of the most powerful of civilisations - and has fuelled and dashed the dreams of women and men across millennia… As Istanbul races up the modern political agenda, new archaeology is allowing us, for the first time, to piece together the full story of a brilliant and a brutal, history-making settlement, inhabited since 6000 BCE."

Join award-winning historian, author and broadcaster, Bettany Hughes, as she discusses her latest book, Istanbul, a Tale of Three Cities.
