Chinese School

A unique insight into the real life of China through the eyes of schoolchildren from the small town of Xiuning.

The children and teachers of the rural town of Xiuning are about to welcome you into their lives, and reveal a place full of vitality, challenges and humour.

Over five episodes Chinese School discovers just what makes Chinese people tick; what they dream of and what gets a laugh.

This is China as the Chinese know it and as the West has never seen it.
