Narrated by Samantha Bond, this film tells the untold story of how the 20-year-old 'Pauper Prince' rose from obscurity in Germany to become one of the most powerful men in the world. Drawing on private letters, memoirs and historical written accounts, as well as expert insight from leading historians, Albert is revealed as a man who faced great prejudice when he first came to Britain, but then outmanoeuvred his opponents and won over both the establishment and the nation to become the 'People's Prince.'

Crossing into Afghanistan in search of the lost city of Bactra, Adams uses the Ancient Greek accounts as a guide to try and locate Alexander's fabled Central Asian Capital. Long thought to be the citadel of Balkh, the Greeks accounts appear to describe a different city entirely. In the markets beneath the citadel, he finds evidence to suggest Bactra may lie out towards the Oxus River at the end of a great delta. Entering Taliban territory, David and his cameraman, Greg, discover the remains of a vast defensive network of walls and fortresses more than 2500 years old. Bactra though remains elusive. Then a chance meeting leads David into the legendary Paraopamisus Mountains of the Greeks. Entering Taliban territory once again, he follows a system of archaic tunnels that lead into a remote valley. As he explores an abandoned archaeological dig site, he considers the Greek records carefully - is this the lost city of Bactra?

To discover the origins of these people and their civilisation that flowered long before Alexander's arrival, David enters one of the least visited places on earth, the Wakhan Corridor. With a caravan of twenty-five yaks, horses and handlers, he begins the final leg of his quest for Alexander's lost world and experiences what it was like for Alexander's army to live and fight in the high passes on the roof of the world. Then, looking for evidence of the earliest communities, Adams finds evidence of farming and irrigation above 4000 meters - evidence that long ago a radically different climate made farming possible on the roof of the world. He journeys on, deep into the high Pamir Mountains on Afghanistan's border with China. Invited by his Kirghiz guides to a wedding on the high plains, he plays Buzkashi and experiences their precarious existence. David then goes in search of the true source of the Oxus River - it remains undetermined till this day. To the merriment of his Kirghiz guides, he measures flow and volumes, before making the final push to the place he believes is the source - an ice cave at the base of a glacier. However, is this the answer to the riddle behind the source of the ancient Oxus River?
