About the programme: They belong to the Turkish Aegean just as much as the turquoise coloured water, paradisiacal bays and cult sites of antiquity: the gulets. These are 30-metre-long wooden sailing boats, handmade and without any construction plans. Electrician Metin installs lamps and advises clients, some of which are rich and famous, such as Bill Gates or Roman Abramovich. June Haimoff, a 90-year-old Englishwoman, was once part of the international jet set. She then came to the small village of Dalyan and since then has been running a hospital for tortoises. She was even able to persuade most of the fishermen in the area to attach protective baskets to the boat propellers. An exceptionally noble wine is produced on the wine island of Bozcaada, even though it contradicts the rules of Islam. The ship breakers of Aliaga work hard. Huge ships from all corners of the world are recycled here. This is something that no tourist ever gets to see.
