Now that I have had a chance to sit down and watch the China National Day 60th Anniversary Military Parade and Evening Gala, I am really impressed with what I saw. It is amazing how strong and wonderful the national patriotism of China is. This Chinese national holiday is so colorful and very well orchestrated and is filled with pride for the Chinese people and all that they have done and developed to become a modern nation. Here is a visual an example for the rest of the world to follow. I would recommend everyone watch this three CD set to get an inside view o f a very exciting nation and all that is happening there in modern times.

very interesting and high quality video I enjoyed watching

There is a small thing that disappointed me
The photograph of the site makes you think that you get a DVD with a hard cover
as a collector's DVD. but it is a normal plastic cover

but in the end it's all about the content of the cover
and that was perfectly done

so for me it was worth the money
