Iraq's Lost Treasure 1

Follow Lisa Ling and a National Geographic film crew through the wreckage of post-invasion Iraq as they search for the Treasure of Nimrud, one of the world's most spectacular caches of golden jewels and dazzling crowns. Discovered in the late-nineteen eighties and then hidden away in 1990, the location of this fabulous Assyrian treasure used to be one of the world's best-kept secrets. But, after a decade of sleuthing by JWM's Jason Williams, the treasure was finally located in the flooded vaults and burned out wreckage of Iraq's Central Bank. The story was so good that their world exclusive find was featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal and on the OpEd pages of the New York Times.
