Dear SH,
Thank you for the mentioned footage featuring the glorious period of Dongjing (東京) , Upper Song Dynasty (北宋), it remind us the period where our ancestors were known as the noblemen.
Lord Wei (魏王) Fu Yanqing (符彥卿) was the father-in-law of 2nd Emporer of Song Dynasty, Song Taizong (宋太宗) ;his second son Fu Zhaoyuan (符昭願) was much favoured by Song Taizong (宋太宗) and his son Song Zhenzong (宋真宗). He was phrased by the historians for his calibre, his proud record was being entrusted with the task of re-building Taiyuan (太原) city after the city was ruined to ashes during a warfare with Beihan (北漢) which was supported by Qidan (契丹)。

Through the Youtube we could have some glimpses of how the generation of our ancestor was living.
