If you get a chance, episode 3 of this series is worth watching as she visits Iran. She visits Persepolis and a Zorastrian fire temple, and perhaps gives a hint of what Alexander's Achaemenid empire might have looked like. The next episode visits Uzbekistan and the world of the Bactrians and Sogdians. https://www.itv.com/
