The latest and fourth season of the popular documentary series Aerial China gives a perspective that is both stunning and informative, Xu Fan reports.
Continuing with its iconic style of capturing scenes from a bird's-eye view, the highly rated documentary series Aerial China recently returned to the small screen, with the latest and fourth season broadcasting on CCTV-1 from Nov 7 and on CCTV-9 from Nov 9.
As the finale of the series, which was launched seven years ago, the new season was shot across 11 provincial-level regions, including Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, making Aerial China the first of its kind to cover vast areas of the country's diverse landscape.
After serving as the chief director for the first and third seasons, Yu Le, who is back at the helm for the fourth season, says shooting for the latest season started in the spring of 2020.
"The cinematography team has accumulated a lot of experience from the previous three seasons, making us more capable to follow wild animals while avoiding disrupting them," says Yu.
