From Hiram Bingham's discovery of Machu Picchu to Jim Westerman's discovery of the Condor Stone, this programme charts the history of Machu Picchu with a look at the Inca building work and mythology. Just why did the Inca build Machu Picchu in such an inhospitable place? Not only was Machu Picchu a residential retreat, but it was also an important centre for astronomical observations. Having spent a long time in Peru I like this video as it's the only one that really shows the long journey to Machu Picchu in reasonable detail, giving the viewer an idea to its isolated location. The video is a little faulty in places. Aired on Discovery Channel

Located high in the Peruvian Andes, the Lost City Of the Inca’s, Machu Picchu, is reminiscent of an imaginary castle surrounded by steep ravines and mountains.Sacrificial sun altars and ritualistic monuments testify to the sun cult of its original inhabitants who used human sacrifices to appease the gods. The massive quantity of building materials used, along with the most amazing building techniques, contribute to the association of Machu Picchu with extraterrestrial influences.
