6 one-hour programs with Michael Wood, sequel to the successful 2009 The Story of India. It is both a chronological narrative and an adventurous exploration on the ground to show how China’s past provides a context for China’s present. With a strong emphasis on participation scenes, Michael Wood reveals the distinctive genius and character of China over the millennia. How will China’s past define the future when it is one of the world’s economic and military superpowers? This is the big question Michael Wood sets out to answer in this BBC/PBS co-production that will air late in 2015. Leo Eaton is executive producing for Maya Vision International.
