Renowned for its historical architecture and cultural practices, including the Great Wall and Confucianism, China is now the most populous country and the fastest growing economy in the world. ‘Man Made Marvels China’ fuses past and present by showcasing their innovative engineering wonders, and recognises that China is as just as well-known for its modern triumphs as it is for its past. Series highlights include a look at how Beijing, once a city of bicycles and empty boulevards, is now faced with a booming population and demands the world’s biggest subway system. Viewers can also find out more about China’s man made marvels in Shanghai as the city prepares for the 2010 World Expo.
