Anchoring a series of specially curated titles for the Lunar New Year on BBC Earth is One Cup, A Thousand Stories. Indulge in the immersive, beautifully filmed story of the drink that changed the world – tea. As one of China's greatest contributions to human civilisation, it has conquered the world to influence cultures, beliefs and behaviours across the globe in surprising ways and is now playing a major role in forging a more sustainable future.

This stunning landmark series tells the story of tea on an unprecedented scale, revealing the extraordinary landscapes of tea, from high mountains to wild coasts.

One Cup, A Thousand Stories premieres on Thursday, 20th January at 9:00pm, on UnifiTV channel 501 and BBC Player | Astro channel 554

Discover this huge and varied country in spectacular drone footage, as traditions, landscape and ways of life are fully revealed from the air.
