DVD #1 - The Silk Road

Run Time: Over 2 hours   -   Regular Price: $24.99   -   Order #: QD4312

The Silk Road influenced the great civilizations of China, India, Ancient Egypt, Persia, Arabia, and Ancient Rome. The Silk Road was filmed by award-winning filmmaker Marlin Darrah, and crew. Filmed in high definition.

In 1271 Marco Polo left Venice, Italy on a journey of 4,000 miles to China. His book, "The Travels of Marco Polo," opened the trade route to greater traffic as cultures, ideas, and goods from the West and East were exchanged and great fortunes were made on the Silk Road. China traded silk, teas, and porcelain. India traded spices, ivory, textiles, precious stones, and pepper. The Roman Empire exported gold, silver, fine glassware, wine, carpets, and jewels. This program travels through five countries and thirty cities bridging the Far East with Europe. Visit these exotic lands and learn about their cultures, modern traditions, and histories.


DVD #2 - The New China

Run Time: 2 hours   -   Regular Price: $19.99   -   Order #: QD4403

This "inside look" at China by Geographic Travel filmmaker, Dale Johnson, is worth noting. For two decades, China's explosive double-digit growth has made her the world's leading economy by the most ambitious people in all of Asia, if not the world. The New China is about a young, vibrant culture that is making things happen that will affect us all. Areas covered include: Beijing, Harbin in the Heilongjiang Provence, The Great Wall north of Beijing, Xi'an (where Terracotta Museum is located), Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River, Karst region in Guilin, and Shanghai.

Bonus Program: The Great Wall of China.


DVD #3 - Touring India and Touring China

Run Time: 2 hours   -   Regular Price: $14.99   -   Order #: QD3744

Program 1: Touring China - China’s rise from feudal relic to modern world power is one of the most momentous happenings of the 20th century. Travel across 2,000 miles and 4,000 years to discover China’s treasures, including the monumental Great Wall and the grand Forbidden City. In China’s vast countryside, viewers will visit Sichuan’s teahouses and the canals of Zuzhou. This program explores how the influence of western culture is impacting China’s struggle to hold onto its identity. Other enlightening segments offer vivid glimpses of Chinese culture and customs, from popular pastimes to ancient traditions. Note: The program covering China on this DVD is the same sixty-minute program that is on Video Visits: China (Order# QD3394).

Program 2: Touring India - India inspired the journeys of Marco Polo, Alexander the Great, Vasco Da Gama and Christopher Columbus, and now…you! From the Himalayas to South India, and Bombay to the Ganges, you’ll find history in the palaces, forts, mosques, Victorian buildings and Hindu Temples that are testament to one of the world’s most ancient and mysterious civilizations. India offers jungle scenes straight from Rudyard Kipling, deserts filled with colorful forts and palaces, tropical beaches, Himalayan mountain vistas and awe-inspiring places of meditation.


DVD #4 - Mystic Iran: The Unseen World

Run Time: 1 hour and 25 minutes   -   Regular Price: $19.99   -   Order #: QD3800

"A...beautiful stirring film."-Kevin Thomas, The Los Angeles Times.

"Eye-opening...an enlightening portrait...highly recommended."-Video Librarian.

Winner: Audience Favorite Award-Noor Film Festival.

Academy Award-Nominee Shohreh Aghadashloo (House of Sand and Fog, 24) narrates this award-winning documentary that chronicles filmmaker Aryana Farshad's soul-stirring spiritual odyssey deep into the heart of her native Iran after a twenty-five year absence. At the risk of confiscation of film equipment and the threat of drug traffickers, Farshad embarked on a courageous and unprecedented cinematic tour to capture on film rites and rituals hidden for centuries. From the women's chamber of the Great Mosque, to the temple-caves in the land of Zarathustra, to the sacred dance of the Dervishes in Kurdistan, she gained access to religious ceremonies and locations never before seen by the outside world.

Extra Feature: Inside Iran Today - A companion film to Mystic Iran etches a fascinating portrait of a contemporary Iran little seen by the outside world. This program reveals a country of diverse landscapes and dramatic contrasts. Archival footage, artwork, and artifacts chronicle Iran's tumultuous past, while recent footage reveals how ancient traditions and modern ways coexist.


DVD #5 - Rudy Maxa's World: Exotic Places - Korea and Uzbekistan

Run Time: 52 minutes   -   Regular Price: $19.99   -   Order #: QD4342

Korea - From the bustling city of Seoul with its 10 million residents to the country's quite countryside, Korea is a travelers paradise. With their misty mountain temples and the uber-modern cities, Koreans mix an abiding sense if history and traditions with a zeal to achieve global success in technology and other industries. Rudy Maxa samples both the delights of cosmopolitan Seoul as well as the tranquility of temples tucked into lush mountains where monks invite guests to stay overnight. And the countryside explains South Korea's other name: The Land of the Morning Calm.

Uzbekistan - In one of his series' most colorful and exotic episodes, Maxa takes viewers along the Silk Road in a country that is an emerging economy in Central Asia. Marvel at eye-popping mosques built centuries ago and impeccably restored during Soviet occupation of the country. Maxa joins a family for the preparation of the national dish, "plov" and visits the yurt of a young family living on an isolated desert plain. Explore trade-route cities whose names summon images of ancient times: Samarkand, Khiva, and Bukhara. This is a front-row seat to a country trying to balance Islam with modern society.
