Planet of TreasuresEurope and Latin America - presenterless version

It was the spirit of discovery, missionary zeal and greed that led the Europeans to the so called New World. “Planet of Treasures” shows this development and visits ancient cultures in Latin America and the Galapagos Islands.

In the Middle Ages the basis was created for Europe’s development. Local centres of power and economy grew and spread their ideas and their trading goods. Important cities like Paris, London or Venice developed the sciences. In the 15th century Europeans begin to probe the planet. There are journeys of discovery that then morph into campaigns of conquest. The victims were the Aztecs, the Maya, the Inca and thousands of slaves who were transported to Cuba. Europe’s rich cultural heritage, born out of a turbulent history, belongs to the entire world. But the history of colonization still haunts the Europe of today.
