Inheritance of the 'Book of Documents'

As a key innovative cultural show produced by CMG, China in the Classics examines the stirring stories of ancient Chinese classics by selecting the most outstanding of these traditional cultural masterpieces and examining the creation process and core ideology in a form that combines cultural seminars, drama and visualization. It brings the ancient classics "alive," demonstrating Chinese wisdom, ethos and values implied in the ancient classics.

In this episode, Chao Cuo returns the "Book of Documents" to the capital where it was stored by the royal Han library. Contemporary reader Sa Beining takes Fu Sheng into the time tunnel and shows him how the book has become better known over the past 2,000 years, including its promotion by Kong Anguo and Mei Ze.

In the end, Sa takes Fu to an exhibition of the "Book of Documents" in a contemporary library. The librarian tells the children about Fu's contribution in lecturing on "Book of Documents." Fu recites a famous line from the "Tribute of Yu": "Yu divided the land. He cut down the trees. He determined the hills and rivers."

Fu is greatly relieved that the book has been passed down. The "Book of Documents," known as "the ancestor of political documents and the origin of historical records" of China, was the foundation of the earliest knowledge system in Chinese civilization.
