A six-part series, from source to sea, about China's most violent river - and the cradle of its early civilisations. 1: Nomads
The river rises on the remote plateaux of Asia. Here, where the summers are very short and the wind blows almost incessantly, lives one of the most interesting of all
China's many 'minority' peoples - the Tibetan nomads. These are a people who ask very little of the rest of the world, and on whom the philosophies of the central government in faraway
Peking have very little effect. Written and narrated by Stephen Jessel , BBC China correspondent from 1981-4.
