Beschreibung des Videoclips:

Hello everyone. Welcome to Journey to the East. I'm Anna Chan. Spanning across two long dynasties, from the Shang Dynasty between 1600-1050 B.C, and the Zhou Dynasty between 1046-256 B.C., the Bronze Age emerged in China. From objects for worshipping, to ornaments for the emperors, musical instruments for entertainment, to weapons for war, this age has been recorded as one of the most significant in Chinese history. In today's Five Thousand Years segment, we will see how bronze was used in ancient China and the objects that are among the most representative of Bronze objects in the world today. Then following, in our China Today segment, we will show the last part from the documentary on the Three Gorges Dam in China.
