A plug for 'China: Between Clouds And Dreams', 7pm, Nov 5th Channel 4.
Catch up if you missed Episode 1, A letter from Russia. This is both a beautiful and moving examination of the responses of children in China to the impacts of pollution and climate change from industrialisation. Starting with school pupils who receive a letter from their Russian counterparts urging them to look after endangered spoon-billed sandpipers migrating to China's coastal flats and moving onto to a young girl with special needs who learns of an endangered porpoise while meanwhile a 'living Buddha' on the Tibetan border instructs his young charges of our fragile connection to nature in a region where climate change is visibly accelerating. Both heartfelt and heartening. A more than promising start to the four part series.
