A four-episode documentary about China's achievements in the protection of the environment since its founding 70 years ago will be broadcast at 8 pm on Monday and Tuesday on CCTV-1.
It is jointly produced by China Media Group and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment.
In the documentary, "ecological civilization" is defined as new form of human civilization, since ecological prosperity means societal prosperity and humans and nature should coexist harmoniously.
The four episodes will each cover a specific topic: water, air, soil and the road to ecological civilization.
