Discovery Channel's latest three-part documentary series, China: Time of Xi, will shine a spotlight on this historic event and uncover the changing landscape of China, what China's unique experience could offer the world and what drives the man charged with the enormous task of maintaining the growth of the world's second biggest economy.

In episode one (People's Republic), the documentary will establish what it really means to be the "people's" republic in the 21st century through the lens of everyday Chinese from ambitious kiwi-growing farmers to a taxi driver in bustling Beijing; young girls with a passion for football and big dreams to a small-town shop-keeper whose life has been transformed by technology. It will also investigate how President Xi's early experiences may have shaped his vision for a 'Chinese dream' and driven him to very publicly commit to ending poverty for the 50 million Chinese still living below the United Nations poverty line.

The second installation (Running China Now) on the other hand, will look at the country's very real challenges in the areas of economy, environment and corruption. Within the economic sphere, China's rapid investment in developing new technology like AI-powered autonomous drones and a ground-breaking electric sky train is helping it to diversify and remake its economy while many young Chinese are now spear-heading projects to clean up the environment, resulting in a new respect for the rule of law. Through case studies, we plunge into Xi Jinping's push for a "system upgrade" across every sector of China. We also discover how Xi Jinping's experiences in highly commercial Fujian province as a young government official shaped his attitude to China's economy.
