Discovering TV

27th May, 2018

BBC One, Sunday, 10.30pm

Celebrated author Orhan Pamuk (pictured right) takes Alan Yentob on a tour of Pamuk’s home city of Istanbul, exploring the buildings, culture and socioeconomic landscape that have inspired novels such as The Black Book and My Name is Red. Here we find a city of conflicts, in a country living between its Ottoman past and troubled present. Worthwhile.
