Since when has Chongqing regained attention from the West? The last time the world eyed my home city was the 1940s - when it was China's wartime Capital.
So here's the news, and I would look forward to seeing this if I had a TV with the Discovery Channel.
Starting tonight, and continuing for 4 nights, the Discovery Channel will show Ted Koppel's documentary on China, The People's Republic of Capitalism. Filmed almost entirely in Chongqing over the course of a year, the series consists of four one-hour-long programs in which Discovery Channel Managing Editor Ted Koppel and his team of producers explore America's economic relationship with China as well as capitalism's effect on the Chinese people.
KOPPEL ON DISCOVERY: THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CAPITALISM, Discovery Channel, Wednesday July 9 at 10 PM (ET/PT) through Saturday, July 12.
Here are some clips from the program (looks familiar):
