After A Bite of China whetted the appetites of viewers and built an online buzz, Walking Dining Tables, another documentary series on Chinese culinary culture, is to be shown on CCTV-9.

The 10-episode program, which took five months to finish, presents delicacies from cities along the 1,609-kilometer Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, including Hangzhou, Suzhou, and Yangzhou.

Producer Zhu Lexian says, historically speaking, the Grand Canal played an important role not only in transporting commodities but also in integrating culture. The documentary follows the route to combine food with historical heritage in cities along the waterway.

Narrated in the form of a travelogue, it is the first of 10 self-produced documentary series by CCTV that will be aired in the second half of this year.
