A documentary which explores the political, social and cultural background of the Ottoman Empire. The special highlights the long reign of Sultan Suleyman, whose empire linked three continents, and was known in the West as "the Magnificent" because of his remarkable military and diplomatic achievements. His reign was a golden age of art and architecture, and the program captures much of the splendor of the age through location filming of the lavish palaces and mosques of the Ottoman Empire.
