TIBET: THE BAMBOO CURTAIN FALLS (Color, 1981, 49 Minutes).
An excellent episode of The World About Us that documents the history of political struggle between Tibet and China through heartbreakingly beautiful color archival film footage that document Tibetan Buddhist public rituals in the days before Chinese occupation from Tibet, as well as the exodus of the Tibetans from their homeland to India lead by the 15 year old Dalai Lama.

TERRA X: DEMONS ON THE TOP OF THE WORLD (Color, 1988, 23 Minutes).
The peoples of the Bon sect of Tibet struggled hard to keep their own animistic religion intact by resisting the initial spread of Buddhism throughout the empire as the state religion. The solution to the conflict was the incorporation of the Bon religion into Buddhism, and in this synthesis, even so-called evil spirits were incorporated into the Buddhist hierarchy so as to harmonize their aspects with divine will. This documentary explains how this was achieved while presenting a view on Tibetan beliefs not otherwise available to western observers.
