In episode four we visit China's east, between the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers - a place of great cities, heavy industrialisation and intensive agriculture. Here we find the centre of a 5,000-year-old civilisation which has created landmarks such as the Great Wall, the Temple of Heaven and Beijing's Olympic Stadium, coexisting with rare animals like the golden snub-nosed monkey, the golden takin and the giant panda.
In episode three, Tibet, we travel from the vast Tibetan plateau, which covers a quarter of China and is bounded by the glacier-strewn Himalayas, to the famous Tibetan Buddhist monasteries. Home to the world's loftiest mountains, deepest gorges and highest-dwelling creatures, we discover Tibet's unique animals like the rare chiru, wild yaks, argali sheep, Tibetan foxes, rabbit-like pikas and brown bears.
In episode two Shangri La, we journey to China's far South West, where rich jungles nestle below towering, cloud-swathed mountain peaks. Jewel-coloured birds and ancient tribes share forested valleys where wild elephants still roam. Stretching to the northern territories where only deserts would normally be found, we discover just how these forests exist.
For the first time in a century, China is opening up to the world. This new six-part series gains unprecedented access into a most enigmatic of countries, to reveal a land of astonishing complexity.
In the final episode Tides of Change we journey along the 14,500 kilometre coastline of China which harbours 5,000 years of history. We travel from Shanghai, China's financial capital, to traditional seaweed-thatched villages. We meet the Keija tea growers of Fujian Province's granite mountains, and delve deep into Hong Kong's deep-water harbour - China's foremost bird sanctuary and the home of the world's last remaining White Dolphins.
