This 90-minute, four-part video programme on Islam looks at the beliefs, culture and history of the Islamic world. Some of the most eminent scholars of contemporary Islam are responsible for the script and there are over 300 stills of the greatest masterpieces in Islamic art and architecture, including illuminated Qur'ans, calligraphy, the great mosques and details from Persian, Turkish and Mughal miniatures in the manuscript collections of the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin, the British Museum, London, and the Freer Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. Other photographs include important sites and subjects from all over the Muslim world, from the Philippines to Nigeria. The musical accompaniment for the video was composed and performed by Mr Salman Shakur, the Iraqi lute (oud) player. The programme is appropriate for use in secondary schools and universities and would be useful for anyone interested in gaining an understanding of the Muslim world, such as diplomats, travellers and businessmen.
