A Year in Tibet

This is an excellent BBC documentary called “A Year in Tibet”, in the Tibetan Autonomous Region’s third largest city of Gyantse. The documentary is probably one of the most objective or fair and balanced ones I’ve seen and it let’s you get a good feel of what life is like inside Tibet for Tibetans. It was also filmed very recently in the year 2007. I just watched the first episode and the documentary centers around life in a Tibetan monastery, a rural family, and a Gyantse hotel owner.

Note: I read from some of the Youtube comments that some of the Chinese translations may be a little off and I think a few of the Tibetan subtitles are bit off as well.

There are five episodes each one hour long, here is part one of six for episode one:

    What are you talking about? The first episode doesn’t even tell that the Dalai Lama’s selection for Panchen Lama (Gedhun Choekyi Nyima) was abducted in 1995 when he was 6, nobody even knows if he’s still alive!

    How is failing to mention this fair and objective?
