As a key innovative cultural show produced by CMG, China in the Classics examines the stirring stories of ancient Chinese classics by selecting the most outstanding of these traditional cultural masterpieces and examining the creation process and core ideology in a form that combines cultural seminars, drama and visualization. It brings the ancient classics “alive,” demonstrating Chinese wisdom, ethos and values implied in the ancient classics.

In this episode, contemporary reader Sa Beining arrives at Fu Sheng’s house in the Western Han Dynasty hoping to consult him about the wisdom contained within the “Book of Documents.” He witnesses the scene where Emperor Wen of Han sends Chao Cuo to study the book.

Fu recalls his experience of reading the book as a child and together with Sa becomes immersed in the “Tribute of Yu.” In remote antiquity, Yu the Great managed to control the Yellow River for the benefit of his people, and to define the nine provinces of Huaxia.
