London's V&A has one of the world's finest collections of Islamic art from the Middle East. Among its 10,000 objects are the Ardabil Carpet, made in 16th-century Iran, one of the largest and finest carpets in existence, and an exquisite rock crystal ewer from 11th-century Egypt. From the summer of 2006 these treasures will be displayed in a dazzling new gallery conceived to increase awareness and appreciation of Islamic art.

The story behind the new Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art is told in a unique film following its creation fromthe first designs and curatorial research trips to Asia, through an 18-month tour of the collection to the United States and Japan to the final hectic days leading up to the glittering opening. The second documentary in this 2-DVD set is an Introduction to Islamic Art, highlighting the beauties and complexities of many of the V&A collection's greatest objects and including glorious location filming in Iran.
