In 1959 the Dalai Lama, god-king of six million Tibetans, escaped to India after the Chinese Communists invaded his country. Today he remains the active, revered head of Tibetan communities throughout India. This probing, provocative special, narrated by William (Cannon) Conrad, documents his life and his people's efforts to maintain their culture.
