    I have been watching thins and have been absolutely fascinated by the series.
    Besides giving an over view of the times and dynasties of China...I so love looking at the people and life.
    I so wish there would be more of such programmes.....we hardly know what goes on in the world other than the diluted and biased versions we get through the media.if at all.

    I've yet to see it though I really want to. I think you might enjoy the 'Empress Dowager Cixi' by Jung Chang. It's a really good book. If you are enjoying watching the China series you'll enjoy this.

    I agree... there does seem to be a lack of intelligent material on the TV... and yes I know BBC4 exists.

    Last night I sat and watched 'Cosmos' by Carl Sagan on DVD ... a gift from my brother... two episodes and I felt way more cleva than I had at da begnin.

    I have them recorded, and I look forward to watching them. I would really like to spend some time exploring China at some point. It really is a fascinating place, with such a compelling history. I'd also highly recommend 'Wild China' - it's another superb BBC documentary series.

    So is her book 'Mao'. Very harrowing.
