Wild China

Wild China

Shows

Wild China is a six-part nature documentary series on the natural history of China, co-produced by the BBC Natural History Unit and China Central Television and filmed entirely in high-definition. It was screened in the UK on BBC Two from 11 May to 5 June 2008. The English narration was provided by Bernard Hill and the series produced by Phil Chapman for the BBC and Gao Xiaoping for CCTV. The Chinese version was broadcast under the title Beautiful China. In Canada, it was broadcast on CBC as part of the series The Nature Of Things narrated by David Suzuki. Wild China was also broadcast in Australia on ABC1 and ABC HD each Sunday at 7:30pm from 18 May 2008. The musical score to accompany the series was composed by Barnaby Taylor and is performed by Cheng Yu and the UK Chinese Ensemble. Prior to broadcast, the series was billed as the culmination of the BBC Natural History Unit's "Continents" programmes, a long-running strand of blue-chip wildlife documentaries which surveyed the natural history of each of the world's major land areas. It was preceded by Wild Caribbean in 2007, but with the broadcast of South Pacific in 2009 the BBC signalled a continuation of the strand.
Stephen Fry in America

Stephen Fry in America

Shows

Stephen Fry in America is a six-part BBC television series in which Stephen Fry travels across the United States of America, a country in which he was almost born. Just before Fry was born, his father was offered a job at Princeton University, in New Jersey, but chose to turn it down in favour of Hampstead. In the six-part series he travels, mostly in a London cab, through 49 of the 50 U.S. states. While he visited an island in the Mississippi River, he did not visit the state of Arkansas. The episodes are regularly repeated in the UK on Dave, lasting an hour and twenty minutes due to advertising breaks. It was aired in America on HDNet. In Australia, the program screened on ABC1 each Sunday at 7:30pm from 9 August 2009. The ratings were so successful that the broadcaster decided to finally air Fry's other BBC programme, QI the next month. The series was filmed in two segments, the first in October-November 2007, and the second in February-April 2008. Special guests featured on the show include Sting, Jimmy Wales, Morgan Freeman, Buddy Guy, and Ted Turner.
