The remarkable story of a great thinker who helped to form a nation and shaped the world

Over 2500 years ago, a man devised a way of thinking that still shapes the most powerful and populous nation on earth.  He was Confucius.

Confucius is one of history’s most influential men – a sage, philosopher and teacher – who, with Socrates and Buddha, lived at an extraordinary time in the evolution of mankind’s civilization. This stunning drama-documentary explores the life and times of Confucius and demystifies his ideas.  We all want to understand China, and through Confucius we can.

Confucius – it is a name we all know.  But who was Confucius?  What was his story and how did it enable him to create his enduring moral philosophy?  What lies at the heart of Confucius’ thinking; how and why was it adopted by a whole nation and what is its influence today? This documentary will unlock Confucius in a spectacular and fascinating film that places him in his ancient and modern context and bring the ideas and sayings of this great philosopher to life.
