Editorial Reviews

This two part series opens the door to China's Forbidden City. It was the inner sanctum and pulsating heart of the Chinese Empire. Today it is modern China's greatest tourist attraction, Beijing's Forbidden City. For 500 years, it served as the home of the almighty Emperors of China, along with their wives, concubines, and entourages of ten of thousands of eunuchs and civil servants. However, the Forbidden City is more that imperial residence. It is the center of the universe and a unique complex of structures revealing a hierarchy of power, both imperial and divine.

A very good overview of the hisotry of the Forbidden City and the rulers who lived there. There are not a whole lot of photos, but one can general feeling of what it would be like to live there.

This DVD does NOT play on my DVD player. Made just a grinding sound. Return and credit were handled promptly and to my satisfaction
