Overview

One could build a solid case for the argument that no nation of the early 21st Century has stirred up as much imaginative speculation as contemporary China. Millions have been intrigued by the country - which remains the single most populous on the planet - and its rapid evolution from an underdeveloped collectivist entity - lorded over with an iron fist by Mao Tse-Tung - into an economic superpower. This four-part documentary series from cable's Discovery Channel simultaenously dramatizes that shift and attempts to resolve many of the land's haunting mysteries. Highlights include a trip through the offices of Chinese Central Television, the metamorphosis of Tianamen Square into a volleyball court, a jeep ride through the Gobi Desert, and much more.
