UAE-based production agency, Wild Media is producing a documentary on the evolution of luxury for BBC World and Louvre Abu Dhabi.

The documentary will be presented by art historian Alastair Sooke.

The film will delve into the world of luxury with art historian Sooke, and ask what it is about luxury that inspires both desire and derision.

"Our journey starts with the oldest pearl in known existence at the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s 10,000 Years of Luxury exhibition. We explore how taste, place and power combined, to create surprising cultural trends throughout our history. We meet with curators, cultural ambassadors and lifestyle critics to ask them whether luxury is a personal indulgence or conspicuous consumption," a statement from Wild Media said.

The film will be broadcast on BBC World News on December 15th, 2019.
