Simon Reeve travels along the Yangtze, discovering a revival of religious faith in China. Starting his journey at the first bend in the Yangtze, Simon follows the river to Dazu where he sees 50,000 ancient and exquisite rock carvings, some of the only religious artefacts not to have been destroyed under communist rule. Taking a river cruise, he arrives at the Three Gorges Dam, the biggest power station on the planet. The journey ends in Shanghai, a shining symbol of China’s new economic might but also a city where many are rediscovering religious faith.
