Wonderful, looking forward to series 2, 3, 4, 5,....

I am totally hooked, cannot get enough of it. Prof. Rana Mitter is a wonderful story teller. It's fascinnating to also hear the lives of some foreigners who played important roles in Chinese history, such as Matteo Ricci, Robert Hart, etc. Looking forward to more series.
