Star-studded early 1980s mini-series based on the life and times of Italian explorer Marco Polo featuring the combined talents of, among others, Burt Lancaster, John Gielgud, Denholm Elliott and Anne Bancroft. Born in Venice in 1254, Marco Polo (Ken Marshall) was only 17 when he set off with his father and uncle to travel the Silk Road to China. Their journey through uncharted territory to Asia lasted three and half years, and was to go down in history as one of the greatest exploratory journeys of all time.
