China. The world’s fastest-growing economy – and land of the megacity. But beyond the familiar images of skyscrapers and bustling crowds Is a different China.
This is a land of extremes and of great natural beauty, where ancient traditions and beliefs still survive.
We join a village of rice farmers as they prepare to take on their rivals in the valley’s annual dragon boat race. We travel over the snowy mountains on the border with Russia as a herding family move their sheep down from the high pastures for the winter, and Kazakhs train hunting eagles. We discover how, in the villages of central China, traditions stretching back at least 1500 years still survive to the delight of everyone – heart–stopping acrobatics and charming shadow puppetry…
