Historian Michael Wood joined the China Exchange audience to share tales from the making of the BBC’s The Story of China, the dazzling documentary shown in Spring 2016. Michael explained the process of condensing complex and long periods of history into hour long episodes and the importance of finding and sharing the human stories of Chinese people. He challenged some audience members’ assumptions on censorship when he explained that making the documentary had been a straightforward and positive experience.
