Description
Summary:The second of two films on Mongolia made by Granada Television in 1974-75 looks at life in Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia and home of a quarter of the population. The city celebrates the 53rd anniversary of the socialist revolution with parades, festivals, wrestling and archery contests, and a remarkable horse-race. (The child jockeys are usually between 7 and 12 years old.) The film returns to a shepherd's camp on a collective for the traditional celebration of Tsagan Sar, the lunar New Year festival now known as the Herdsman's New Year.
