China: Triumph and Turmoil review [DVD]
on 8 May 2013
This is a glossy Niall Ferguson documentary which charts the economic situation in modern China in 3 perfect parts. It's got a catchy introduction and during the course of the programme covers the cultural changes undergone in China during the past few decades, interviewing unique individuals and visting places of political importance. It's a documentary for both experienced economists and beginners alike, with plenty of variety and really punchy issues. In fact, I didn't normally buy documentaries of this kind, but enjoyed this particular one so much that I actually went out of my way to order this DVD online.
Recommended for anyone who loves China or is concerned about the economy of the world in general. I'd also recommend it to motorcycle enthusiasts as there's a giant Ducati factory involved. Or to collectors of Niall Ferguson material (if there are any). Forget feature films - sometimes it's more exciting to get stuck into some real-life adventure!
