Roads to Xanadu is an intriguing investigation of the dynamic inter- change between East and West in the making of the modern world. Episode 1: “The Price of Harmony” dramatically re-creates the atmosphere of 13th Century China, the richest and most powerful Empire of those times. Episode 2: “The Invention of Progress” examines the interplay and conflict between Europe and the East, which began with the arrival of the Jesuit missionaries in Asia in the 16th Century.
