China Chopper

on BBC Two England

A First Aerial View of China
Last year, the first-ever aerial film of China astonished even the Chinese, showing as it did a land of incredible beauty, full of the unexpected.
From the falls of the Yellow River, the helicopter flew through mountain gorges to Dun Huang , an ancient city hidden in the Gobi Desert; along the silk route to Llafa, in Tibet; to Taihu, pearl of the south, and finally along the Great Wall of China, whose 2,000 miles can be seen from the moon. Narrator JACK MAY
Produced by the CHINESE NEWS REEL AND DOCUMENTARY FILM UNIT, The People's Republic of China
English version written by DAVID WEIR Film editor KEN LOCKE
