China's Secret Lands Tibet: Ancient Land, Modern World (eps. 01)

Tibet is the rooftop of the world; the highest plateau on earth and an extreme high altitude environment where people have lived for five thousand years. It is a place of ancient wonder but now an emerging modernity is being woven into the tapestry of the region. Nomadic herders make camp amongst solar farms and thermal power stations on the vast plateau, as scientists examine cosmic rays from space. Prostrating pilgrims inspire fashion designers, whilst ancient Buddhist art forms inspire those seeking enlightenment. These mystical people who live so close to heaven may be faced with challenges as Tibet modernizes, and as it becomes more connected with the rest of China, but they have the determination and resilience required to survive and adapt in one of the most extreme environments on the planet.
