Part two

Flowing through the heart of Istanbul in Turkey, the Bosphorus has been a flash point between cultures, religions and imperial powers for thousands of years; from the Roman and Byzantine Empires, to the clash between Islam and Christianity and the Cold War between the super powers of the East and West. In a three part BBC series Edward Stourton looks at that rich history and how the Bosphorus works today.
