When Phileas Fogg visited Shanghai in 1871 it had only recently been established as a trading centre, today it is a global super city. David Rosier takes us on a journey from the early days of the city, through the many upheavals it endured during the twentieth century to the vast metropolis we see today.
David kindly filmed two extra videos especially for us and our visit to Shanghai
The Dowager Empress Cixi
The Shanghai Museum
