Can't get enough of China in HD?

It's feeling at times like every programme on BBC HD is now set in China; after the excellent Wild China and the extensive daily coverage of the Beijing Olympics we now have Secrets of the Forbidden City, a documentary covering the creation of Ming Emperor Yongle's palace, the Forbidden City (9pm, Thursday August 14th).
Earlier this evening is the final episode of Lost Land of the Jaguars. I know that some reviews have been critical of this series saying it focuses more on the naturalists than the nature itself, but for me these guys are heroes and following them makes the exploration and discovery all that bit more personal. And, of course, the pictures are sumptuous in high definition.
