I first heard about the documentary on Saturday morning.

Everyone waited for it to be taken down. 150 million views later, it's still up. Watch it here.

As usual, I was awoken by one of my children crawling into our bed. It was my older daughter, who brought a book and curled up under the covers. Being the digital addict that I am, I groggily turned on my phone, and something strange was happening — a bunch of people were talking about a documentary, "Under the Dome," that had just been released in China. Within 24 hours of its release, it had over 100 million views online. Over the weekend, it had over 150 million views. But here's the really crazy thing — it might have just changed the game when it comes to China's relationship with the environment. Everyone in China, from government officials to concerned parents, was watching it. I emailed a friend of mine in China. In a country where government censorship shuts down critical voices, how did former journalist Chai Jing break through to reach over 100 million people? Absolutely heartbreaking. Here are the powerful final minutes of the stunning documentary that's going viral in China.

Until her unborn daughter was diagnosed with a tumor.

Here are the powerful final minutes of the stunning documentary that's going viral in China.

While Chai's daughter ultimately underwent a successful surgery to remove the tumor, she started questioning things she previously took for granted. Like the meat smell that constantly rose up from the restaurant underneath her apartment. Chai always figured that the restaurant didn't have the technology to filter its emissions in the same way that restaurants in countries like the U.S. and the U.K. did. But as it turns out, that wasn't true at all. Soon, other things began occurring to her. Once again, she always assumed there was nothing that could be done about the fumes. Which led her to this conclusion... ...which lead to a revelation... ...which inspired her to make this stunning film. You can watch the final eight minutes of the documentary below, with exclusive English subtitles. The Romanovs - An Imperial Family [2000]

The Lost Prince. The Lost Prince is a British television drama about the life of Prince John – youngest child of Britain's King George V and Queen Mary – who died at the age of 13 in 1919.

The Lost Prince

A Talkback Thames production written and directed by Stephen Poliakoff, it was originally broadcast in January 2003. It won an Emmy Award in September 2005. Plot[edit] John suffered from epileptic seizures and an autism-like developmental disorder, and the Royal Family tried to shelter him from public view; the script shied away from presenting the Royal Family as unsympathetic, instead showing how much this cost them emotionally (particularly John's mother, Queen Mary). Poliakoff explores the story of John, his relationship with his family and brother Prince George, the political events going on at the time (such as the fall of the House of Romanov in 1917) and the love and devotion of his nanny, Charlotte Bill.
