- Program Description
Orville Schell, author and longtime observer of China, makes the journey to the roof of the world to examine the fate of Tibet. Forty years of Chinese occupation have left tens of thousands of Tibetans dead and 6,000 Tibetan monasteries and temples destroyed. Today the Dalai Lama is in exile. Lhasa, the capital, is predominantly Chinese, and one of Tibet's most sacred lakes is being developed for Chinese hydroelectric power. Schell chronicles the history and culture of Tibet, explores the Chinese view of Tibet, and looks at why the survival of Tibet's people and culture has become an international issue.
