It was first broadcast at CCTV-2 from November 13, 2006 to November 24, 2006. It discusses the rise of nine great powers: Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, and the United States.

The documentary "endorses the idea that China should study the experiences of nations and empires it once condemned as aggressors bent on exploitation" and analyzes the reasons why the nine nations rose to become great powers, from the Portuguese Empire to current United States hegemony.
