The Year China Discovered America?Streaming Video - 2011
Did China discover America? An amateur historian and former submarine commander in the British Navy, Gavin Menzies poses an argument that could change the way we perceive global history forever - that Chinese admirals discovered America and that ancient Chinese junks were the first to circle the earth. 1421: The Year China Discovered America?, a program based on Menzies best-selling book, presents a startling journey of adventure and exploration that could turn the conventional view of world history on its head. This fascinating documentary examines the mystery surrounding the sailing exploits of the legendary Admiral Zhen - exposing the tale of his 30-year command of a gigantic Ming fleet; his daring voyages and achievements and the mystery he unwittingly created, that would tantalize the world...500 years later.
