The two documentary series are made by Zhao Yigong and Han Meng based on the oral history interviews they did with filmmakers and crew members from the Chinese film industry in the 1940s to the 1990s. One is about film production during the Great Leap Forward period, and the other is about the sports themes in the PRC film production.
