BBC's latest nature documentary series "Blue Planet II" was praised by Chinese audiences when it is aired on Tencent's v.qq.com.

Tencent Penguin Pictures will cooperate with top-notch overseas and domestic studios to introduce and co-produce high-quality documentary programs, officials have said.

In recent years, a few documentary series from home and abroad have received wide acclaim from Chinese audiences when they aired on Tencent's v.qq.com. 

Among them are BBC's latest nature documentary series "Blue Planet II," China Central Television's culinary documentary "A Bite of China," as well as "China from Above," a co-production of National Geographic and China Intercontinental Communication Center.

In 2018, Tencent Penguin Pictures will work with the UK's ITV to jointly produce "The Cute Ones," a series about adorable animals. The studio and America's A&E will also co-produce a documentary series about the generation born in the Internet age.

According to Wang Juan, vice president of Tencent Penguin Pictures, another aim of these co-productions is to present more original Chinese stories to the world.

They will collaborate with Chen Xiaoqing, then director of the popular documentary "A Bite of China," to produce a new culture series about the evolution and profound influence of Chinese delicacies. Different from "A Bite of China," the new series will be shot with a global vision.

Other new documentary projects will tackle subjects like China's major festivals, the achievements of reform and opening-up, and the country's long history. They will be shot with refined cinematography and creative perspectives to cater for all audiences.
