Zi jin cheng Forbidden city : the great within
This program explores the history of imperial China through its symbolic heart: Beijing, the "Forbidden City." The program presents a visually stunning tour of the hub of the world's oldest bureaucracy and center for all Chinese government, a city containing schools, temples, theaters, gardens, and 240 acres of palaces. Period paintings, etchings, archival material and readings from 1,000 years of Imperial diaries complement this access to a capital long closed to the outside world.
