IN SEARCH OF GENGHIS KHAN (Color, 1991, 45 Minutes.).
Post-communist Mongolia was only just opening up to socio-political change and the outside world in the late 1980s when the first group of Mongol nationals were successful in obtaining permission to make a trek to the ancestral home of Genghis Khan in search of his tomb, and they invited British explorer Tim Severin to accompany them on their journey. Unbeknownst to these explorers, the Japanese television network NHK was also permitted to do so, and their expeditions literally ran into one another at their journey's beginnings. The expeditions joined as one, and not only did they pursue the tomb of the Great Khan, but they also documented the first public displays of Mongolian culture, customs, sports, military skill contests, secular and religious festivals since the end of the Mongolian People's Republic had forbidden these displays decades before.

THE WORLD: A TELEVISION HISTORY: EPI. X: THE MONGOL ONSLAUGHT 850-1500 AD (Color, 1983, 28 Minutes.).
An episode of the comprehensive world history television series specifically concerned with the conquests of Genghis Khan and his successors, as well as the history and culture of the various Mongol kingdoms.

TIMELINE: NOVEMBER 18, 1247: THE MONGOLS TARGET WESTERN EUROPE (Color, 1989, 28 Minutes.).
An episode of the The landmark American, British, Spanish and Turkish educational television series co-production wherein historical events from the Middle Ages are reported in the style of TV newscasts, an episode which reports on the threat that the Mongols would invade Western Europe after having overrun much of Asia and created one of the greatest empires ever to exist, stretching from China through Russia to the borders of Europe itself.


Genghis Khan (also transliterated as Chinggis Khaan), Mongolian emperor, founder and first Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death (1162 - August 18, 1227) was born Temujin Borjigin in the Khentii Mountains of Khamag Mongol. He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia. After founding the Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan", he launched the Mongol invasions that conquered most of Eurasia. Campaigns initiated in his lifetime include those against the Qara Khitai, Caucasus, and Khwarazmian, Western Xia and Jin dynasties. These campaigns were often accompanied by large-scale massacres of the civilian populations - especially in the Khwarazmian and Western Xia controlled lands. By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China. Before Genghis Khan died he assigned Ogedei Khan as his successor. Later his grandsons split his empire into khanates. Genghis Khan died in 1227 after defeating the Western Xia. He was buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in Mongolia. His descendants extended the Mongol Empire across most of Eurasia by conquering or creating vassal states in all of modern-day China, Korea, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and substantial portions of Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. Many of these invasions repeated the earlier large-scale slaughters of local populations. As a result, Genghis Khan and his empire have a fearsome reputation in local histories. Beyond his military accomplishments, Genghis Khan also advanced the Mongol Empire in other ways. He decreed the adoption of the Uyghur script as the Mongol Empire's writing system. He also practiced meritocracy and encouraged religious tolerance in the Mongol Empire, and unified the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia. Present-day Mongolians regard him as the founding father of Mongolia. Although known for the brutality of his campaigns and considered by many to have been a genocidal ruler, Genghis Khan is also credited with bringing the Silk Road under one cohesive political environment. This brought communication and trade from Northeast Asia into Muslim Southwest Asia and Christian Europe, thus expanding the horizons of all three cultural areas. Genghis Khan died, at the age of between 65 and 72 in August 1227, during the fall of Yinchuan, which is the capital of Western Xia in what is now northwestern China. The exact cause of his death remains a mystery, and is variously attributed to being killed in action against the Western Xia, illness, falling from his horse, or wounds sustained in hunting or battle.
