    This World tells the story of White Horse Village, a tiny farming community deep in rural China. A decade ago, it became part of the biggest urbanisation project in human history, as the Chinese government decided to take half a billion farmers and turn them into city-dwelling consumers.

    It is a project with a speed and scale unimaginable anywhere else on Earth. In just ten years, the Chinese Government plan to build thousands of new cities, a new road network to rival that of the USA and 300 of the world's biggest dams.

    Carrie Gracie follows the lives of three local people during this upheaval, filmed over the past six years.

    Within in seconds, Chinese party member to villagers- " we HAVE to follow the plan" difference between India and China is stark.

    But that 'follow the plan' brings the results that everybody is witnessing and marveling.

    Hey. I'm not passing judgement, purely an observation. Two very different approaches with their own pros and cons.
