At the ongoing Shanghai Television Festival, agencies from both home and abroad gathered to seek a good purchase. Among them, CCTV productions have made a lot of buzz. Sensational documentaries like "A Bite of China" have attracted quite a bunch of buyers.

At the CCTV booth, the best sellers are "A Bite of China" and "The Forbidden City 100". These are the most successful TV documentaries and have earned a reputation both in China and beyond. Overseas stations appear as good buyers.

Ma Runsheng, general manager of China International TV Corporation says, "Just five minutes ago, we just had a talk with Times Warner from the US. They are very interested in our productions. Both sides are looking forward to deeper cooperation on Chinese documentaries."

"A Bite of China" and "China’s Mega projects" were unveiled at Cannes in April and have already been to a number of countries. However, according to Mr. Ma, "deeper cooperation" means more than signing purchase contracts. It includes shooting and producing together.

Ma says, "For example, we could put together a "Forbidden City" co- produced by CCTV, Taipei TV station, as well as Japan’s NHK. An international edition of "Forbidden City" would help demonstrate cultural glamour from different perspectives."

So far, CCTV reaches more than 140 countries and regions, serving several hundred million users. With an ever expanding overseas market, Chinese TV productions are ambitious enough for globalization.
