Hello, Farhad Moshiri,
Take a look at a related series from Bullfrog Films, HEROIN WARS (series
of 3 DVDs) on the history of the narcotics trade in Burma and Hong Kong.
Includes three programs: "The Opium Convoys" -
"Smack City" -
"The Kings of Opium" -
"Proving, again, that truth is far more intriguing than fiction, The
Heroin Wars is documentary film making at its finest, a superb and
skillfully told story which ultimately reveals that as long as there are
supplies, and drug addicts, there will always be a drug trade. Highly
recommended for purchase." Gerald A. Notaro, University Librarian,

Subject: [Videolib] British rule in China documentary

Dear Colleagues,
I'm looking for a documentary that deals with the British Empire rule in
China, Opium War, occupation of Hong Kong, etc. Do you have any
recommendations? Thanks.
