The BBC Synopsis of this program:

Shangri-La

The second of Michael Wood's historical journeys in search of the world's greatest myths takes us on a thrilling trek through India, Nepal and Tibet in search of Shangri-La. The tale of the magical valley hidden behind the Himalayas was popularised in the 1930s movie Lost Horizon. But the story of a secret earthly paradise is much older. To find the truth behind the legend Michael goes on foot through some of the forbidding lands of the Himalayas. He visits timeless monasteries and the world's most sacred mountain before finally reaching the fantastic ruins of the lost city which he believes is the real inspiration behind the myth.
