Wonderful 28 minute glimpse into modern Tibet

Tibet is virtually impossible for the non-Chinese press to see. But NHK was allowed in and made this wonderful documentary. It's not necessarily what was said that's interesting, but the "progress" that can be seen.

Here is the link to the video.

One of the people highlighted is this Han Chinese businessman from Fujian who is supposedly making a fortune as a commercial real estate developer. I can't tell if it's his haircut, his suit, his Jaguar XJ L, or his accent (I know, I'm terrible), but I feel like he's just a small town huckster.
