5 x 60-minute films for BBC4, in partnership with Seven Stones Media
For the first time, the BBC has been able to film inside Tibet unsupervised by Chinese authorities, to follow the lives of ordinary Tibetans across an extraordinary year. This unprecedented access gives a remarkable insight into the significance of Buddhism in everyday life and the complex and often surprising relationship between Tibetans and the Chinese immigrants who they live and work alongside.
The series is both an intimate observation of a society and a compelling insight into the impact of the Chinese Communist Party on Tibetans’ lives.
