Empires of Silver
Episode 1  |  The History Channel  |  March 17, 2019

China has become rich through tax reform and trade. Underpinned by silver, its economy is booming. But the 19th Century is fast approaching and a new Empire, Great Britain, is emerging to challenge China. For now these 'foreign barbarians', as the Chinese call them, are under control, but for one Emperor there will be war and humiliation in the century ahead.
