With splendour, scale and romance, Wild China lifts the veil on the world's most enigmatic and magnificent country, delving into its vibrant habitats to reveal a land of unbelievable natural complexity. Journey across China from the glittering peaks of the Himalayas to the barren steppe, the sub-Arctic to the tropical islands, through deserts both searingly hot and mind-numbingly cold and see, in pioneering images, a dazzling array of mysterious, beautiful, wild and rare creatures.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoHeart of the Dragon||The fairytale hills of Guilin and the cormorant fishermen of the Li River form the heart of this exploration of the colourful rice-growing cultures and strange creatures of southern China - a land of endless hills, mysterious caverns, spectacular rock pinnacles and traditional cultures with a taste for wildlife.||49:00||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|2||Closed CaptioningVideoShangri-La||Beneath billowing clouds, in China's far south west, rich jungles nestle below towering peaks. Jewel-coloured birds and ancient tribes share forested valleys where wild elephants still roam. These remote forests stretch into northern territories where normally deserts would be found. How do these forests exist? Perhaps the rugged landscape holds the key.||49:05||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|3||Closed CaptioningVideoTibet||The vast Tibetan plateau is one of the world's most remote places. It's home to chiru antelopes, wild yaks, foxes and bears and a remarkable culture shaped by over one thousand years of Buddhism, while its mountains and glaciers provide a vital life support system for half the planet.||48:29||£1.89||View in iTunes|

|5||Closed CaptioningVideoBeyond the Great Wall||The extreme landscapes north of the Great Wall have shaped some of China's most colourful people and wildlife. From nomadic tribes hunting with eagles to camel trains crossing the Silk Road, from frozen Siberian wastes to baking deserts of Central Asia, life in northern China is always on the edge.||48:42||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|6||Closed CaptioningVideoTides of Change||Ancient tea-growing cultures, traditional seaweed-thatched villages, bird-filled wetlands, rare white dolphins, snake-infested islands and futuristic cities jostle along China's fertile eastern seaboard. Here lies the front-line in the scramble for resources and space between seven hundred million people and a surprising wealth of wildlife.||49:03||£1.89||View in iTunes|

Very nice china
I love it
Made me want to go and travel in China again!
Having visited China a couple of times and found it interesting, I had high hopes for this series. I'm happy to say it met them. I enjoyed all of the episodes, though the Shangri-la one was perhaps my favorite. Many beautiful scenes are captured, and there's a bunch of interesting information about the people, the wildlife and the geography. Already watched a couple of the episodes twice over. :-)
