A Superb Documentary by NHK and CCTV
17 August 2010 | by darkthirtySee all my reviews

This documentary really deserves a new transfer - it's detailed, gorgeous, and full of delights. The soundtrack by Kitaro, perhaps his most famous work, is really wonderful. Apparently the crew were given access to China's historical sites, and town and villages along the Silk Road, that was unprecedented. A second part was also made.

An updated version was produced in 2005, apparently, by NHK and CCTV. The whole thing. The episodes in this set are The Glories of Ancient Chang-An A Thousand Kilometers Beyond the Yellow River The Art Gallery in the Desert The Dark Castle In Search of the Kingdom of Lou-Lan Across the Taklamakan Desert Khotan -- Oasis of Silk and Jade A Heat Wave Called Turfan Through the Tian Shan Mountains by Rail Journey into Music -- South Through the Tian Shan Mountains Where Horses Fly Like the Wind Two Roads to the Pamirs
