As the seat of Imperial power from 14th to the early 20th century, the Forbidden City embodies the grandeur of Chinese civilization. Its nearly 10,000 rooms hold an extensive collection of artifacts, treasures, and antiques from throughout the Ming and Qing dynasties. This documentary also explores how these treasures survived the turmoil of wars and tells stories about antiques that were disappeared, stolen, or plundered during the chaotic first half of the 20th century.
