Il Tibet, chiusosi ermeticamente al mondo nel secolo XIX, fu aperto a forza dagli inglesi nel 1904, per tornare subito a richiudersi ancora più ermeticamente di prima. Solo negli anni Trenta cominciarono a presentarsi rare occasioni d’accesso per alcuni privilegiati. Giuseppe Tucci, uno dei nostri massimi orientalisti, seppe approfittarne più volte. Nelle sue spedizioni del 1937 e del 1948 ebbe come compagno Fosco Maraini, allora giovanissimo, che dalle sue note di viaggio trasse «Segreto Tibet», un libro che ebbe enorme successo e fu tradotto in dodici lingue. In un momento in cui film e libri di successo puntano il dito sulla terribile situazione di oppressione e di violenza in cui si trova il Tibet a causa dell’invasione cinese, questo libro straordinario ci fa sentire la voce autorevole e appassionata di uno dei primissimi testimoni di una straordinaria civiltà che rischia di scomparire.

In the barren landscape of remote western Tibet lies the ruins of a mysterious kingdom A kingdom whose capital was 3600 meters high on the Tibetan plateau. A kingdom that offers archaeological treasures that compare with Italy’s Pompeii. Once controlling the trade in gold, silk and spices between India and China, it was a kingdom of fabulous wealth and great religious significance. For two centuries it was the cradle of Himalayan Buddhism. Yet this spiritual and commercial hub, which prospered for seven centuries, vanished without a trace in 1630.

This film is being brought to television as a result of a BBC/British Film Institute co-production. A recently restored treasure-trove of colour films from the 1940s and 1950s provides the core of this astonishing film, which allows us to see what Tibet was like before its brutal occupation by China. As members of the aristocracy and the Tibetan government in exile recall, the Tibetans world revolved around a series of colourful religious festivals, taking up 68 days of the year.

Typically impressive natural vistas from director Jean-Jacques Annaud (some secretly filmed on location in Tibet) highlight this adaptation of the memoir by Heinrich Harrer. Brad Pitt stars as the arrogant Heinrich, a famed Austrian mountain climber who leaves behind his wife and infant son to head a Himalayan expedition in 1939, only to fall into the hands of Allied forces as a prisoner of war. He and a fellow escapee, Peter Aufschnaiter (David Thewlis), make their way to the Forbidden City in Tibet, where Peter finds a wife and Heinrich befriends the Western culture-obsessed teenage Dalai Lama (Jamyang Jamtsho Wangchuk), the spiritual leader of his Buddhist nation. As Heinrich waits out the war, his friendship with the Dalai Lama begins to transform him from haughty to humble, but a crisis with China looms. A controversy over the revelation of the real-life Harrer's Nazi Party affiliation brewed during the film's production, forcing Annaud to briefly deal with the subject in the film.

Each year, groups of Tibetan children secretly flee their homeland over the Himalayas to reach schools in India founded by the government in exile. Entrusted to smugglers, they are risking their lives by illegally crossing the great Himalayan range, a towering rampart between Tibet and India. The director will take us in the Mussorie school, in North India, where two thousand four hundred children have been rescued. They have left behind their family childhood and are now considered as orphans. We will discover the itineraries of Sonam, aged nine, and Dholma, the little new girl of the school. Here in India, they are taught about Tibetan culture and will find out about the history of their country and their ancestors. Sonam and Dholma's story is that of thousands of Tibetan children. Are they orphans of a lost country or bearers of hope who will save an endangered culture?

Seven days’ journey by car going west from Lhasa, Tibet is a desolate desert area known as Khyunglung Valley. It was here that the Guge Kingdom flourished for 700 years – an extraordinary Christian and Buddhist civilisation rich with art and culture – that vanished mysteriously in the 17th Century. Until now, archaeologists have not been able to solve the mystery of Guge’s demise, but a recent discovery may unlock the enigma of who the Guge people were and what happened to them 400 years ago.
