BIG ANNOUNCEMENT from TCA17 !!!
The Story of China premieres in the US this Summer – June 20, 2017! #StoryofChinaPBS
Yesterday the Story of China team were at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour #TCA17 in Pasadena, CA. Here are some photos of historian, writer and host Michael Wood, producer and director Rebecca Dobbs and Harvard postdoctoral fellow Lik Hang Tsui discussing the history of China, from the ancient past to the present day.
The show started with an amazingly colourful Lion Dance performance from the Immortals Lion Dance team.
When discussing The Story of China Michael Wood told the press at TCA17 that the ‘crucial thing is the living culture’. He explained he wants the series to be ‘immersive’ in its depiction of a ‘living civilization’. Michael then told the story of the 8th Century Chinese Emperor who walked among the poor in disguise.
Producer/Director Rebecca Dobbs explained how ‘it was surprisingly easy to get access’ during their 3 years of filming in China.
