Last year, I hoped to have a short documentary on the Dalai Lama's escape from Tibet finished by March 2009, the event's 50th anniversary. For many reasons it didn't get completed, but I'm happy to give it some kind of life here and will post some of the more finished segments throughout the month, starting tonight. Also in the month's mix will be clips from recent interviews with Tibetan former resistance fighters who share their personal experiences from March 1959. So in one way or another, all March videos will be devoted to this landmark month in Tibetan history.

For now, to officially kick off, as well as March, here's the open sequence to the never-finished and never-seen "Escape into Exile".
