Rediscovering the Yangtze River: China's first 1080i documentary

Shot entirely in 1080i50, Chinese all around the world are praising this tremendous effort. You might say it's the "Over China" of the "Over" series, but this is not just about aerial shots. the documentary goes more in-depth into the people and history behind the scenery.

It is broadcasting in 1080i on CCTV's HD channel in China, but it also airs on CCTV 4 in 576i or 480i (depending on what color system you can pick-up).

Update: For those of you that can't understand Chinese but can understand English, an English version is now airing on China's CCTV-9 (China Central Television's English language channel) under the program "Documentary".
