Wild China will be going out on BBC2 - Sunday, May 11th at 9pm.
This promises to be an eye opening insight into the large and enchanting land. I've seen the first programme and it really blew me away. The style felt fresh, a blend of obs docs and traditional blue chip, flowing melodically to take you on journey through the diverse landscapes of China. It kept me completely enthralled and captivated through the whole 50minutes - I never looked at my watch once.
This is a land of unbelievable natural complexity from the glittering peaks of the Himalayas to the barren steppe, the sub-Arctic to the tropical islands, through deserts both searingly hot and mind-numbingly cold and see, in pioneering images, a dazzling array of mysterious, beautiful, wild and rare creatures.
I can't wait to see the rest of the series.
