Tv Season Info

Filmed over the course of more than two years, Wood and his crew were able to capture locations and events never before filmed by outsiders; places news crews would never venture to in order to tell this epic story. From the first dynasty to the last and up through the Mao years and today, the series covers everything from culture and the arts to scientific and technological advances to its political/military history. And touches on unique aspects like a centuries old Jewish community in Kaifeng and women's mosques, Chinese food culture springing up in the 10th Century and the possibility that the Chinese were the first to invent soccer!

The Story of China is good entertainment, if you don't mind a little whitewashing of recent history.
