Floyd around the med
The Moorish invasion of Spain from across the Straits of Gibraltar in 700 AD dramatically shaped the culture, the science, the astronomy, the gastronomy, the agriculture, religion and civilisation of Europe. In this stylish nine-part television series, Floyd embarks on a magical journey through the rich and varied cultures of the Mediterranean. He will witness the splendour of the architecture and discover the pride and passion that lies behind the history of the Med. Floyd will celebrate, as people always have, the great traditions of food and wine, the exotic fruits, vegetables and spices that have influenced cooking throughout the world.
