    Nova: Lost Treasures of Tibet (60 min.)
    “Lost Treasures of Tibet” follows restorations to 15th-century Buddhist monasteries in the Himalyan kingdom of Mustang, a Tibetan enclave in present-day Nepal. “The Buddha says that everything is impermanent,” notes cleric Sakya Trizin, and that includes Thubchen, a
    royal monastery in Mustang's capital, LoManthang. Leaks from the roof are wreaking havoc on artwork on the walls (which also haven't been cleaned in centuries). Restoration techniques similar to those used in the Vatican's Sistine Chapel are applied by a team led by British
    architect John Sanday, who worked on restorations at Angkor Wat. But local residents don't trust the Westerners' motives.

    Buddhist Fist
    An early classic by the legendary YUEN WO PING, director of Iron Monkey and action director for the Hollywood hit The Matrix, THE BUDDHIST FIST is the story of two orphans who are raised separately by Shaolin monks and trained in lethal art of the Buddhist Fist. Fate reunites them after a series of attacks at the monastery, and a surprise revelation leads to a duel to the death between the two brothers. Packed with furious fight scenes expertly choreographed by Yuen Wo Ping and presented in its original wide screen glory, THE BUDDHIST FIST is good old-fashion kung fu fighting at its very best!

    I just watched "Way of the warrior" total bullshit. They had a large "harvard educated" fat man telling the camera that the samurai used aikido for hand to hand combat. Oh wait, aikido was made in 1942. I would have expected more than that from the discovery channel. They failed to do some simple background research.
