Leila redefines the very concept of "wonder". Tristan disputes this wholeheartedly, and offers a scenic tour of the known world's must-see attractions, circa 250 BC.

Episode 16, in which Leila and Tristan take a scenic tour of:

- the really quite shockingly old Great Pyramid

- Babylon, Nineveh, and nowhere in particular in search of the Hanging Gardens

- the often forgotten Ishtar Gate and the walls of Babylon

- the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus. Not that Artemis. This one.

- the gobsmacking statue of Zeus at Olympia

- the ugly and unhinged Mausoleum at Halicarnassus

- the definitely not-bestride, briefly standing Colossus of Rhodes

- the refreshingly functional Lighthouse of Alexandria

- Leila's nonsense carnival of wonders

Tristan and Leila crawl out of their igloos to look down on their neighbours to the south. Why couldn't they have just asked politely for freedom? And seriously, guys? Slavery? We ask the hard-hitting questions, 240 years late. 

JOIN, or DIE.
