The first of two programmes in which the presenter explores the country that lies at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, and discovers the dramatic changes it is undergoing. The first leg of his journey begins in Istanbul, from which he travels along the Aegean coast to the hostile border with Syria. He meets refugees trying to start a new life and a billionaire taking advantage of a property boom. He moves on into the Taurus Mountains and the Black Sea Coast, and visits a community trying to keep an ancient language alive.
