Chinese New Year is one of the biggest events on the planet and every year a sixth of the world’s population travels home to celebrate with their families. 

Based in the heart of Beijing, this eye-opening series offers a front-seat view of one of the most spectacular events on Earth. Each episode explores a different side to this celebration, from Beijing West train station where eight million passengers a day squeeze onto trains to take them thousands of miles home, to Xinfadi food market where families, restaurants and businesses stock up for the all-important New Year Feast to Beijing’s stunning Temple of Earth, where thousands of families visit to pray for happiness and good luck amidst a cacophony of fireworks.

BBC Earth is on Starhub Channel 407.
