Synopsis:
For six centuries, the Forbidden City has been at the heart of one of the most powerful and enigmatic countries on earth: China. It is the biggest palace in the world and one of mankind's greatest historic and architectural icons. It is a bewildering maze of hidden secrets and unexpected legends, closed for hundreds of years to the outside world. Special access has now been granted so we can reveal the secrets about how and why the city was built and what extraordinary events and unimaginable horrors went on inside its walls.
Using the latest archaeological and historic discoveries, combined with state of the art CGI and thrilling dramatic reconstructions, 'Secrets of the Forbidden City' tells the incredible story of the creation of Ming Emperor Yongle's palace, 'the Forbidden City', and how the despotic emperor clawed his way to power: betraying his own family and killing anyone who dared to stand in his path...
