In the middle of Beijing sit the surviving buildings of the former Chinese imperial Palace, collectively known as the Forbidden City. Built predominantly from wood in the early 15th century, for hundreds of years the facts behind its creation, initiated by the great
Ming Emperor Yongle, have been clouded in secrecy. But using neglected chronicles from the period, some translated into English for the first time, this drama documentary reveals how Yongle betrayed his own family and killed all in his path to reach the throne, before building his gilded prison stocked with concubines, guarded by eunuchs and rife with greed, treachery and sin. Narrated by Cheri Lunghi.
