[BBC – Twenties In Colour] Middle East, The Birth Of Nations

5 Oct

From the collection of Albert Kahn “No sooner had Europe declared an end to its Great War than the seeds of new conflict were sown—in the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire. With his characteristic global awareness, archivist and photography patron Albert Kahn chose to document the historic changes occurring in the colonial Middle East. This program traces his team’s expeditions into Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine as Western powers redrew the map of the region. The French takeover of Syria, the Balfour Declaration, and Turkey’s war with Greece come to life in Kahn’s street-level films and autochromes—which also serve as reminders that Jerusalem, like many other Middle East locations, suffered greatly during World War I. Contains mature subject matter. A BBC/Musée Albert-Kahn (Département des Hauts-de-Seine—France) Coproduction. A part of the series The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn.(52 minutes)”

“Series examining Albert Kahn’s ambitious Archives of the Planet project, in which he sent photographers around the world to document all aspects of human life.”

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard
    against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. With thanks

    Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
    of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
