Between tradition and modernity, between wadis, desert and wonders of the world. "The Kingdom of Jordan" invites you to discover this treasure chest of the Arab world!

Jordan's breathtaking landscapes, its biblical-archaic sites, its impressive nature, and its people are the focus of this 2-part documentary. The small Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan rests like an oasis in the middle of the melting pot of the Middle East. "A quiet house in a noisy neighbourhood" is how the late King Hussein described his country. With its liberal attitude, Jordan is a place of refuge for many people from the region. And that is precisely what makes it so exciting! Christians and Muslims live peacefully together here. The kingdom is a land of exciting contrasts between the Red and Dead Seas in the west and the desert in the east. While young Jordanians open music clubs in the pulsating metropolis of Amman, Bedouins in the south of the country continue their traditional way of life.
