BBC News - Searching for lost kingdoms

Here in the UK, we have the chance to watch BBC programmes again via iPlayer. I realise that it is not useful to the rest of the world, but this is going to be a fantastic series which will probably be available on DVD, I would expect. It is about the ancient lost cities of South America and I cannot wait to see it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-20975815

The link reminded me of the incredible holiday we spent in Patagonia a few years back. On our way there, we stayed over in Santiago in Chile where we visited the Pre-Colombian Museum. I saw so many amazing textiles there that I have to go back to the website quite often just to remind me of what is there. Have a play on http://www.precolombino.cl/exposiciones/exposicion-permanente/andes-centrales/sala-textil/vitrinas/ (use the translate button on Google Chrome for the English) and see what an amazing collection they have.
