  • In That Faraway Place

    In That Faraway Place

    Qinghai is the birthplace of the Yangtze, Yellow, and Lancang Rivers, hence its reputation as the “Home of the Headwaters of the Three Great Rivers of Asia”. After stopping by Qinghai Lake, we will head to Jinyintan, where Atomic City, China’s first nuclear weapons development facility, was built in 1958. In Golog Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, we will appreciate the national intangible cultural heritage of Hua’er and stop by Red Army Valley, the only part of Qinghai through which the Red Army passed on their 8,000-mile Long March. We will then set foot in the uninhabited territory of Hoh Xil, which is also known as the “Master of Famous Mountains”, enjoy a performance of the Tibetan people’s Yushu Zhuo Dance, and visit the world’s largest prayer pilgrimage site, Xinzhai Jiana Mani Stone Mound, to marvel at a 24,000-m² “ocean” of Buddhist scriptures comprising two billion Mani Stones.

  • Cruising the Capital

    Cruising the Capital

    The city of Zhangjiakou is the northern gateway to Beijing. Dajing Gate, which is found inside the city, is one of the four main gates of the Great Wall of China as well as the backdrop of the Pingjin Campaign, one of the three major battles of the Chinese Civil War. Nuanquan Ancient Town to the south of Zhangjiakou is renowned for “dashuhua” (lit. “beating tree flowers”). This Lunar New Year celebration activity originating in the Ming dynasty involves the splashing of molten iron against the city walls, generating explosive and magnificent fireworks. Traces of rust that date back five centuries can still be seen on the wall of the town’s Northern Official’s Fort.
    When it comes to the most treacherous part of the Great Wall, the Simatai section near Miyun County in Beijing certainly claims the throne. Embedded into precipitous cliffs, its mere sight strikes fear into one’s heart. Meanwhile, orphaned sections of the Great Wall in remote areas depend on a guardian for protection. Liang Qingli’s ancestors were involved in the construction of a section of the Great Wall, and he has inherited their will to guard it.
    In Beijing, we will appreciate the craftsmanship of Imperial Embroidery. Beijing Embroidery artisan Jin Xin once assisted the Capital Museum/Palace Museum in recreating the coat worn by Empress Dowager Xiaojing on her wedding. In front of the Forbidden City lies Tian’anmen Square, the place where the founding of the nation was announced in 1949.

  • The Roaring Yellow Dragon

    The Roaring Yellow Dragon

    In this episode, our presenter will travel from Maqu River, the source of the Yellow River in Qinghai, to The Great Bend of the Yellow River in Gansu. She will learn the national intangible cultural heritage of the Lanzhou Taiping Drum Dance and marvel at a World Heritage Irrigation Structure – the ancient canals diverting the waters of the Yellow River in Ningxia. After passing through the World Heritage Site that is the Bingling Cave-Temple Complex, we will stop by Hukou Waterfall in Shanxi and visit Xinguan Town, where Mao Zedong wrote the poem “Snow, to the Tune of Spring in Qin Garden” when he led the Red Army into Shilou County from Qingjian County, Shaanxi. Finally, we will arrive at the estuary where the Yellow River drains into the Bohai Sea in Shandong and take a closer look at another national intangible cultural heritage – Weifang Kites.

  • The Search for Roots in Shaanxi

    The Search for Roots in Shaanxi

    Located in Shaanxi Province, Mount Huashan was already mentioned in the “Classic of Mountains and Seas”. Qing dynasty scholar Zhang Taiyan even believes that it is one of the cradles of Chinese civilisation. In 1949, towards the end of the Chinese Civil War, the People’s Liberation Army used bamboo poles and ropes to climb the precipitous cliffs of Mount Huashan in order to reach its North Peak. This trail was later paved and named “The Intelligent Take-over Route of Mount Huashan”.
    Shuangquan Village, which lies in the vicinity of the mountain, is the birthplace of Huayin Old Tune, a type of music dubbed “China’s most ancient style of rock and roll”. Research has deduced that it evolved from the calls that Western Han dynasty boatmen used to made. Although it has been included in the Representative List of China’s National Intangible Cultural Heritage, this ancient art form is sadly facing the cruel fate of being lost due to a lack of inheritors.
    Early humans excavated caves to use them as dwellings. Yangjiagou to the north of Yan’an is home to the Ma Family Manor, a cave home complex. Arranged in a configuration described as “Five Exposed, Four Concealed, Six Compartmental”, the courtyard cave dwellings served as the residences of prestigious families in the Qing dynasty. During the Chinese Civil War, the People’s Liberation Army was also stationed here under Mao Zedong’s leadership.
    The inhabitants of the Loess Plateau have subsisted on millet for millennia. It was even an imperial tribute in the Ming and Qing dynasties. This drought-resistant grain is the only crop that can be grown in the dry climate of Mizhi County. Generations of farmers have been persevering silently, all in the hope that their offspring can have a way out.
    Meanwhile, peculiar landscapes are on display below the plateau. A Danxia landform area the size of Kowloon Peninsula featuring wavy red sandstone terrain can be found in Jingbian County. A festive dance is performed amidst this masterpiece of nature – Jingbian Donkey Running. How does its inheritor Zhang Youwan attract the younger generation to learn this craft?

  • The Infinite Yangtze

    The Infinite Yangtze

    Starting our journey from Shanghai, the eastern estuary of the Yangtze River, we visit the Site of the First National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party located in the former French Concession, where the Communist Party was established in 1921, to explore the origins of our ancestors’ ideals. After passing through Qutang Gorge and travelling along the Wu River, the largest southern tributary in the upper reaches of the Yangtze, our presenter arrives in Guizhou. There, we climb Mount Fanjing, the highest peak of the Wuling Mountains and a Natural World Heritage Site, and also traverse Red Cloud Golden Peak, one of the summits in the mountain’s upper section. Continuing our tour of Guizhou, we drop by Zunyi Conference Memorial Hall, a site related to the Red Army’s Long March, to look back at an important turning point in the history of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. We then head west to the upper reaches of the Yangtze to experience the local scenery and culture there.
