Discovery Atlas: China RevealedIn one of the few times in its 5,000-year history, the oldest, most populous nation on earth has opened its doors to the rest of the world.

Coupling insightful storytelling with spectacular and groundbreaking photographic techniques, Discovery Atlas: China Revealed brings to life the fascinating and complex contemporary life of this extraordinary country.

In today's China, the economics of feudalism and communism are out, while capitalism is in... with a Chinese twist. Old walls are being torn down, and a futuristic landscape of glass and steel is shooting up in their place.

Leading the construction frenzy is Vincent Lo, China's answer to Donald Trump. Exploring where tradition meets modernity, viewers will follow the dreams of a 12-year-old Olympic hopeful, then join rice farmers tilling land their ancestors have worked for 18 centuries and monks teaching a 500-year-old discipline.

Discovery Atlas: China Revealed promises to be a visual delight, delving deep into the people and places of the oldest civilization on the planet.

Welcome to China, where we decide what you will be when you are BORN. Welcome to China, where if you want freedom, we'll run you over with a tank.
Welcome to China, where we will take all your possesions and give them to someone else.
Welcome to China, where we let 40 MILLION of our own people starve to death on PURPOSE!

Unwatchable BS 55 seconds into the first 10 minute clip might try to watch later when im sleeping so I can say I at least gave it a viewing. I really want to see the parts about tibet, human rights and fair trade I need some laughs.

I loved China. I'm headed that way again most likely either sooner or later. I can't wait to have hotpot again! Truth be told, I really liked dog stew, but it's only available in the winter. How many people can say they've been "mauled" by a panda? I have! Minorly. It got me right on the face when we were taking a picture, and yes, it drew blood!

i love it when cute documentaries like these are made to aide department of tourism of countries........ just prior to the olympics. it was only a generation ago that their government killed millions in their revolution....

they are doing the same with brazil now... .where the government pays millions to movie companies to show the good parts of the country out there.... just before the olympics... of course, in brazil the government kills people by stealing money from hospitals and nurseries....

"NATION" seems to be the word you overlooked bud. But nice try - with tryin to pin an innocent historic truth as a racial slur and all. Better luck next time brotha.

WRONG. AFRICA is the oldest civilization in the world. EVERYTHING originated from Black people. The Black man is the original man. Period.
