HCM CITY (VNS) — The Binh Duong Province's Radio and Television Station (BTV) will broadcast a documentary TV series featuring the seas and islands of Viet Nam on Monday.
The 100-part film, Ky Su Bien Dao (The Sea and Island Chronicle), focuses on local fishermen and their culture and lifestyle.
It features the topics of history and culture, economy and tourism.
The film also portrays the daily life of Vietnamese soldiers and people stationed in the Truong Sa (Spratly) Islands.
The BTV's film staff spent a year working with local people to discover seas and islands in 28 cities and provinces.
They worked at many famous destinations in Quang Ninh, Kien Giang, Nha Trang, and Phu Quoc and Con Dao islands.
"We began filming in Quang Ninh and closed our production with beautiful scenes in Kien Giang. We reported on the daily life of local people, trying to make their culture of hundreds years come alive through our film," said Dang Ngoc Quy, a member of the film group.
What makes this film special, Quy said, is the blending of scenes featuring the natural environment with daily life, which include remote villages and locals' activities and fishing industries.
Filmmakers tried to focus on the soldiers' lives and work, giving audience a closer view of their silent contributions to the country.
The film's 15-minute parts will be broadcast on BTV2 and BTV1 channels every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 9.30pm. — VNS
