  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Liverpool stripped of its world heritage status by Unesco” – below is their description.

    It was once one of the greatest maritime cities on earth, at the heart of global trade since the 19th Century.

    In 2004 Unesco’s world heritage committee recognised Liverpool’s unique and iconic status and elevated it to a position on par with wonders of the world, like the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.

    Today, after 17 years as a world heritage site, Liverpool has lost that crown. The reason? New developments.

    In This Story: Great Wall of China

    The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications that were built across the historical northern borders of ancient Chinese states and Imperial China as protection against various nomadic groups from the Eurasian Steppe. Around 4,000 miles long, the wall is an impressive architectural feat, much of it remains intact, though some has fallen into disrepair and is overgrown. The various sections of the wall were built over many centuries.
