China Wild

5 x 50 HD 4K
Broadcaster:  CCTV 9

China: a country with the world’s most diverse ecosystems, teeming with an incredible array of wildlife. This landmark series showcases the country’s five largest habitats, from its ancient forests to the Tibetan grasslands, from the Yangtze’s wetlands to China's megacities and surrounding oceans.


The series reveals never-before-seen behaviours, rare animals, and conservation in action, in extraordinary environments. In the forests, we join the territorial battles of rival Francois' leaf monkey clans, and discover new efforts to save the endangered Manchurian tigers and Amur leopards. We follow Tibetan foxes hunting pikas on the alpine grasslands, and the breeding season of the world's smallest crane, the Demoiselle. In the wetlands, we learn about the re-introduction of the Yangtze finless porpoise, and witness the mating rituals of the world's oldest marine creature - the Chinese horeshoe crab - with a history of over 300 million years. In the cities, we join north-eastern Chinese hedgehogs eking out a living in Beijing, and playful macaques feasting at Chinese New Year in the plateau city of Guiyang. In the oceans, we discover a recent proliferation of flame jellyfish, and follow the latest attempts to restore the northern edge of the coral triangle in the South China Sea, one of the world's richest underwater habitats.


This is the wild side of China, as you've never seen it before!
