UK exhibition celebrates China's 'golden age'

Exhibition of 15th century Ming Dynasty showcases collection of artifacts never before seen outside China.

    A new exhibition opening in London is looking at a "golden age" in Chinese history. It is the first exhibition of its kind, and many of the Chinese artifacts have never been seen outside of China.

    The exhibition features just fifty years of the Ming Dynasty and aims to show the country's relationship with the world, both then and now.
