There is a lot of great footage that you wont see on the Discovery Channel in this doc... although I wish the Discovery Channel would show films like this!
If you are looking for a film that has a lot of interesting material and something that you could watch multiple times, I recommend this to you. I'd also tell you to check out the rest of the Mysterious China Series if you are at all interested in China - I own the whole set.
If you want, you can grab it on Amazon's Createspace for a little less. createspace.___/234953 Use the code: 8HWNVXRD for 10 percent off.
