“If Chinese history is a house, then Chinese scholars look at the structure of the house in the house. It is difficult for us to jump out of the house and look at the house outside. However, foreign scholars are not influenced by Chinese culture, so they can see China from a different perspective.”


“The Great Wall is a building left to us by our ancestors. Thanks to the restoration of the Great Wall by scientists, the ancient history of China continues and generations of Chinese people can see such a magnificent building. I hope that China will be stronger and I also thank scientists for their efforts.”  


“Just two episodes? Not enough! I really hope to learn more about China history!”


“The Great Wall runs through thousands of miles, and China lasts for thousands of years.” 


“Excellent documentary is worthy of thumb up, bookmark and sharing, and I hope more people can see it” 


In addition, France5 TV Station has purchased the telecast right of Great Wall (International Version) and plans to complete the broadcast within the year.

The appearance of the Great Wall (International Version) on TV stations and new media platforms at home and abroad will trigger a new round of “Great Wall” upsurge in the international market.
