With splendour, scale, and romance, Wild China lifts the veil on this 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||HDClosed 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||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|2||HDClosed 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||$2.99||View in iTunes|

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||$2.99||View in iTunes|

|6||HDClosed 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.

Future vacation destination
I'm enjoying watching another aspect of China and learning about this rich nation culture.. its worth the 1.99.... I hope one day to visit..
One of the best
This is absolutely one of the best "location" documentaries I have ever seen. It is breathtakingly beautiful & informative without ever getting boring or overly preachy. It is a great mix of landscape, animal & human/cultural documentation. Also all of the areas that the film is broken into "episodes" about are really different, so it isn't just the same thing repeated for different regions.
