Travel to Lijiang and learn about life in China of the 1990s. At first, this small town may seem strange to you and its residents very different, but you'll quickly discover that people in Lijiang care about the same kinds of things as you. Watch the drama of the Lu family as they live and work. Follow Mr. Mu as he deals with the aftermath of his nephew's murder, and observe the official inquiry into the young teenager's death. See Dr. Tang use acupuncture to treat Little Swallow, a young girl with cerebral palsy. China: Beyond the Clouds is an intense journey into the dreams, anxieties, and joys of ordinary people living in an extraordinary time.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD Exclusives titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
