OUR GUY IN CHINA
BBC Knowledge, 8.30pm
China is a fascinating place, and this series, presented by bike racer and engineering enthusiast Guy Martin, goes off the beaten track. Instead of visiting the usual tourist destinations, the cult hero has an itinerary that ties in with his own interests (nice work if you can get it). The three episodes will each cover a different aspect of China: the countryside around the famous Yangtze River, the urban powerhouse of the capital city Beijing and the stark beauty of the Gobi Desert.
