Thank you for posting this! I read about it on the NY Times website, but with living in China I wasn't sure I'd be able to watch it.
Am enjoying this series more than I expected to do so; wish more people had the demeanor of the guest manager (could make it more fun to come to work!)
PBS once did an hour show on the Chinese Circus. Those kids were getting verbally abused left and right but did some of the most amazing trapeze tricks I've ever seen. They put Cirque Du Soliel to shame even. Definitely makes you wonder what life is like for Chinese gymnasts.
