Mary Wong had said that this broadcast was the 44-minute versions that were a result of the collaborations with other media companies. The unexpurgated “Canadian” versions are the ones on the DVD, that are 55 minutes long.
The “China Rises” series on CBC television is also available as DVD.
I finally watched the last of four episodes of China Rises, that I had recorded on videotape. I think that it will be worth buying the DVD.
