From a childhood in "Shangri-La" to a life in exile, BIOGRAPHY presents the riveting, life-affirming journey of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. One of the world's most admired men, he is the spiritual and secular leader of a nation that exists only as a "Lost Kingdom." Born Tenzin Gyatso, he is the 14th man recognized by his people as Buddha's reincarnation and honored with the title he is known by worldwide: His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Yet, for a man so widely respected, His Holiness has been living in exile since 1959, after a failed rebellion against the occupying Chinese forced him to flee his nation. Highlighting key footage from the Dalai Lama's life--including his acceptance of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize--this enlightening program features interviews with Chinese scholars, Tibet activists such as actor Richard Gere, and His Holiness himself to chronicle in great detail the ongoing struggle to free Tibet.
