An excellent 1987 broadcast of the Asian-American showcase TV series hosted by Tritia Toyota (of whom The Dickies song "Stuck In A Pagoda With Tricia Toyota" (sic) is about) of a wonderful 1985 film by Lisa Hsia, a young Chinese woman from Illinois who returns to the country of her ancestry when she comes to stay with relatives while she attended Beijing University.

MAIL ORDER (Color, 12 Minutes)
Women - Chinese, Japanese, Philippino, any Asian - they're all the same in the imagination of a lonely yuppie white American man looking for love: by video mail order if he has to, by winning a beautiful Japanese waitress he fixates on if he can. Image and reality clash in this 1988 UCLA Department of Film and Television production, assisted by the Institute of American Cultures and the Asian Studies Center, UCLA, written and directed by Daniel Tirtawinata.

SINO-WORLD TELEVISION: RIOT IN NATIONAL ASSEMBLY (Color, Chinese [Mandarin] Language, 28 Minutes)
An extraordinary 1990 installment of the Taiwanese nightly satellite tv news network reporting on a shocking eruption of rage in the Taiwanese National Assembly [National Assembly (Republic of China)] between members of the Guomindang party and Qinmíndang or People First Party. It is unnecessary to understand Mandarin at all in order to be astounded with wonder that what you are seeing actually happened. Great commercials in both English and Mandarin appear throughout.

Cathay is a historical name for China that was used in Europe. During the early modern period, Europeans thought of Cathay as a completely separate and distinct culture from China. As knowledge of East Asia increased, Cathay came to be seen as the same polity as China. The term "Cathay" became a poetic name for China. The name Cathay originates from the word Khitan, a nomadic people who ruled the Liao dynasty in northern China from 916 to 1125, and who later migrated west after they were overthrown by the Jin dynasty to form the Qara Khitai empire (Western Liao dynasty) for another century thereafter. Originally, this name was the name applied by Central and Western Asians and Europeans to northern China; the name was also used in Marco Polo's book on his travels in Yuan dynasty China (he referred to southern China as Mangi). Odoric of Pordenone (d. 1331) also writes about Cathay and the Khan in his travelbooks from his journey before 1330, perhaps 1321-1330.
