春晚 Chinese New Year Show - build-up and live watching


Recommended Posts

Watching it on CCTV news here too. Usual mix of amazing sites and too good to be true songs and lyrics, but still entertaining and quite a spectacle. For someone like me, in the UK this is really the only thing of this kind we see except maybe for the opening of the Olympics.


I am enjoying it for what it is, a slice of china and chinese way of thinking.


Happy new year to everyone.

Hm thanks Shelley.

After the displays of filial piety I'm glad I had the foresight to buy a chocolate cake.

Yum yum.


Eeep! Communist party song!


Dancing robots and drones! indeed 没有共产党就没有新中国.

If you receive any of the CCTV channels you can try to catch a re-run.

There's also this page with individual videos:
