By David McNewBy David McNEWThe British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is currently working on a series of documentaries exploring the cultural differences between the two countries.
One of the programmes, titled “British Culture: Bridging the Cultural Divide”, is being produced by the BBC’s new Diversity Channel.
It follows a group of British students on a trip to Dubai.
The show will feature interviews with students from the UK and a visit to a British museum in Dubai.
In the documentary, the students come across a “somewhat peculiar” exhibition of paintings by the American artist Thomas Edison.
The exhibition is on display at the British Museum in London, and the students are taken on a tour to see it and talk to Edison himself.
The students also come across two people who are different in their cultures.
One is a Chinese artist and the other is a Japanese woman.
One student, who goes by the name of Sarah, has a Japanese name and a Chinese surname.
The other is from India.
Sarah, a former student at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), said she was attracted to the work of Edison, whom she met through a friend in college.
“He’s the father of modern art,” Sarah said.
“I’ve always been interested in the way he uses colour and lighting to create the beauty of his paintings, and that’s what attracted me to Thomas Edison and his work.”
So I decided I’d go and learn about his work, learn his ideas and learn more about the relationship between the arts and the country we live in.”‘
Bridging the cultural divides’ is an effort to bring to the forefront the many differences between Britain and China.
The programme was created by the London-based firm, PRW, which specialises in producing and marketing documentaries.PRW has produced documentaries on Chinese pop culture, including the Chinese pop star, Zou Liang, and Japanese pop stars, Yoichi Ando and Mika Kondo.
PRW is also producing a documentary on the relationship of the US to India.
In addition to Sarah, the team also features American singer-songwriter-producer Chris Martin, who was born in India and has a British mother.
PRM says it has been approached by a range of artists including the American rapper and actor Common and the Japanese composer Mitsuko Nakamura.
The show is currently being produced for the first time by the British Broadcasting Company (BBC), which is producing a new Diversity series, ‘British Culture’ which is set to debut later this year.
It will be broadcast on BBC One from September 8.
The BBC says it will also host a range more informative documentaries from the same BBC production team, including ‘The Invention of the Modern Language’, ‘The Making of a Modern Culture’, ‘Britain’s Future’, ‘Bridged the Cultural Divisions: A History of the British Culture’, and ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams: The Rise and Fall of an Australian-Style Pop Culture’.
