Program Abstract: "[This video] travels back to China's troubled feudal era to tell Confucius' dramatic story, from his impoverished childhood and down the long road to his years as a celebrated teacher. Leading scholars reveal why his message of "five virtues" was not always accepted by the leaders of the day, and an interview with a direct descendant, XianLin Kong, provides a personal glimpse into Confucius' legend."
