Tues 6/20: The Story of China (PBS)
Michael Wood has been presenting documentaries for over three decades, with his specials encouraging audiences to view themselves as global citizens. His next mini-series is an ambitious one, exploring the history of the world’s oldest continuous state: China. Given that the country is undeniably an important superpower at present day, yet still widely misunderstood, it would seem as important as ever to learn about its culture past and present. During the program Wood travels across the land, setting is lens upon the cities, landscapes, and people.
