Abstract:

China: with over 1.3 billion people, China has the largest population on Earth. China, the ancient "Middle Kingdom" has entered a new ear. This vibrant program traces China's revolution-torn history, and charts the effect of contemporary economic reforms that have opened new doors to the outside world as never before. From major cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, to country villages, viewers will get a clear sense of how today's China blends the modern with ancient traditions. This program also features illuminating segments about Chinese housing, shopping centers and diverse cultures.

Japan: its 127 million people live in a modern country the size of California. The island nation of Japan has raced to the forefront of technological advancement while remaining steeped in the traditions of a civilization 2,000 years old. This program etches a vivid portrait of contemporary Japan as an industrial power, with fascinating segments about its corporate culture and fiercely competitive educational system. This program also examines Japanese housing, Shinto and Buddhist traditions, Wester-style recreational habits, landscape gardening, and culinary practices.

Australia: aboriginal settlers arrived 40,000 years before the first Europeans. Beyond the more familiar cities of Sydney and Melbourne lies a lesser-known continent and country of stunning geographical and climatic contrasts. This program surveys Australia's New South Wales, Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, and Queensland regions, as well as the Northern Territory. Comparisons with equivalent United States geography help to present a clear picture of Australia's size and diverse terrains. Australia's colorful history is presented, along with stunning footage of its unique wildlife.

Indonesia: with 245 million people, it is the most populous Muslim nation in the world. Indonesia's diversity is reflected in its 250 ethnic and language groups and thousands of islands. This program offers a representative sample of the world's largest archipelago that is said to have one foot in the present and one in the past. Visits to seven major islands, including Java, Sumatra, Bali, Komodo, and Flores Island reveal unique rituals and cultural traditions.
