There are many threads in the forum regarding how to backhand plus an article for the correct grip on backhand shots. Secondly, there are many types of trickshots and I don't know whether you mean deception or the flashy shots, but I don't think you should be doing the flashy trick shots anyways.

Back to more powerful BH shots -- Are you just referring to shots in the backcourt? Are BH shots in the forecourt also a problem? If you are having probelms with all BH shots, try adding some finger power (squeezing) technique to your shots.
If the problem is primarily in the backcourt, then one remedy to it try to get your body behind the shuttle as often as possible. The weakest BH shots are the usually the ones that get to the side or behind your body. If you make an extra effort to keep the shuttle between you and the net, then more of your BH shots will be easier.
For the shots that you cant get behind then other techniques are needed. Most players use the thumb-up-the-back grip for BH shots between them and the net. However, for shots more to the side or those just starting to get past the front shoulder, the thumb postion, for many player, will shift. Try a search for alternate BH grips.
I already mentioned finger power (do a search) as one means. Another technique is to perform your arm action in 2 parts. Before the shuttle approaches your hitting zone, bend the arm at the elbow at an acute angle. Just as the shuttle nears the hitting zone, straighten the arm at a moderate pace (not too fast) with the racket head trailing. At the last instant (with the arm almost fully extended), use a vigorous (very fast) supination with some finger and a bit of wrist action.
There are other techniques to improve the deep BH that you should be able to find using the Search feature of this message board.

how long have you been playing?
how often do you get to play?
do you have a coach? a regular teacher at least?
if you just want an abnormally strong backhand shot, i'm 100% sure that it'll develop naturally if you play more and more. While backhand trick shots are part of a different story.

For other badminton vids try video.google.com or search the youtube site. You should be able to find some Chinese vids with English subtitles if you search for CCTV.
There are also several pay sites that are worthwhile. They've got a few freebies:
