Here is the trailer for the BBC documentary. It asks the question, "How did a man born in the depths of Asia build an army and an empire that spanned the world?

He is remembered as a genius in war, but he promoted trade, and the empire was about business. The safety of travel and the code of laws was a hallmark of empire. Even Marco Polo could not have traveled to the court of the Chinese emperor Khubilai Khan had his grandfather not created the peace.
