Encounters: The meeting of Asia and Europe 1500–1800

2004, 50 mins

In the three centuries after the explorer Vasco de Gama first landed in India in 1492, meetings, trade and exchanges of all kinds flourished between the peoples of Europe and Asia. These encounters and the hybrid cultures that developed have left an extraordinary legacy of exquisite works of art and compelling human stories. This documentary was produced alongside the V&A's landmark 2004 exhibition of the same name. 

This documentary is available to view from 16 June, 5pm to 31 August, 5pm. A secure login and password will be emailed to ticket holders upon booking.
