For most of us, Africa stands for beautiful grasslands and wild animals that we could never see in China, except maybe at the zoo. But there's much more to it than that.

The good news is, we can find out more about this continent by watching a new CCTV documentary set to air next January. It's called "Glamorous Kenya."
"Glamorous Kenya" is a documentary film about the beautiful people, landscape and traditions of the land of Kenya. Shot and produced in High-Definition format, this is the first independent production by CCTV's Documentary Channel, and all shootings were completed in Kenya alone.
Compared to previous works on African countries, "Glamorous Kenya" is all about looking inside the country through the eyes of the crew that traveled there. Hence, the production is embedded with a Chinese perspective.
Xiao Wai, director of "Glamorous Kenya" said, "Wild animals is not all of it. We're also looking at the traditional and modern life and human condition of the Kenyan people. What's more, we're capturing Kenya as a cultural community in a Chinese way."
In all, the mission is to document and preserve the culture and beauty of the African lands. The 3-episode documentary will be broadcasting on CCTV Documentary Channel on January 6th, 2012.
Each episode will focus on the a theme of wild animals, tribal and urban lives of Kenya.
