This is from a series of films by Global Television shot all over world, giving well photographed introductions to various places, of which we will be focusing on the ones of interest to Buddhists.
The films are quite light introductions to their subjects, mainly good photography, well chosen soundtracks, and a reasonable, but sometimes inaccurate, narration giving a cultural and historical introduction to its subject.
Today’s film is shot in Bagan, the ancient capital of what is now Myanmar, and is unusual it that it has no narration, just videography of the temples and contemporary people and crafts that are flourishing around the complex.
We see some of the fine temples that make up the site, as well as the sculptures they contain. We also get a glimpse of the residents as they go about their daily work against a glorious backdrop.
