Summary

Kate Humble and Ant Anstead present the final programme from Hong Kong, looking at what happens after New Year. Kate trains with a top dragon dancing troupe and discovers that not only is it a highly demanding Kung Fu based art, it is also taken very seriously as Hong Kong people sincerely embrace the tradition of lucky lions and dragons at New Year. Meanwhile, the Hairy Bikers are at Beijing's Temple Fair where they explore a tradition from imperial China of the Emperor starting the New Year by renewing his mandate of heaven.
