Rated TBC by the BBFC


BBC documentary series on the remote kingdom filmed, unusually, without the supervision of the ruling Chinese authorities. Filming a year inside the ancient Baijin monastery and charting the lives of those living in the medieval town of Gyantse which surrounds it, the series attempts to paint an intimate portrait of Tibetan society, while also providing a snapshot of what life is really like for ordinary Tibetans living under autocratic Chinese rule.
