Anyone else watch the first program of this natural history series?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00bv6lk

Found it very enjoyable, not least the many breath-taking scenery shots, but also interesting on how they appear to be focussing on different regions for each episode (much as Land of the Tiger did for India).

Even more so, fascinating to see how the paddy fields were used by frogs and also to breed carp. And the school build inside of a giant cave.

Looking forward to the next episode. :)

Yeah it's a great series, really enjoyed it the first time it came out. It really shows how China is practically a world in itself (and when people ask why the Chinese didn't go out and conquer the world like the Mongols or Alexander the Great it was was because, they had everything they needed already - why bother with more :))

A good series indeed. There was an especially germane section somewhere in it about Chinese attitudes to environmental damage.
