BEIJING, Oct. 20 (Xinhuanet) -- Journalists travel off the beaten track to give news a different perspective, Cui Jia, Wang Yan and Jiang Xueqing report in Beijing.

Xu Wei flipped through the TV channels and sipped a cold beer after a typical workday. Normally, the 26-year-old Beijing resident would just watch stand-up comedy to pass the evening away. But a program, about life in the border regions, caught his attention.

Travel the Borders is a series produced and aired by China Central Television (CCTV) under the nationwide Go Grassroots campaign for the media.
