The Central Compilation and Translation Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) is preparing a TV documentary featuring the introduction of Marxism into China and its development in the countryside to mark the 90th CPC founding anniversary next year.
The 8-episode documentary is expected to be presented in May 2011, said the bureau's director, Yi Junqing, at a press conference Thursday.
"The documentary will focus on the stories of translators and theorists who have contributed to the translation, publication, publicity and research of Marxist classics in China, instead of expounding on existing theories and political leaders' remarks on Marxism," he said.
The TV series will also depict Marxism's journey into China and the application of Marxist theory in the country's reform and development, according to Yi.
The bureau will partner with Heilongjiang TV station in northeast China to produce the TV documentary.
The 90th CPC founding anniversary falls on July 1 next year.
