China promotes TV, radio shows to rally morale in coronavirus battle
BEIJING, Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- Around 180 television and radio shows will be broadcast without airing fees on television and radio stations across China from February to the end of August, according to the National Radio and Television Administration.
This comes as a result of a TV and radio shows promotion campaign launched by the administration to rally public morale in the battle against the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak.
The shows cover a variety of topics ranging from culture, science, to education and health and include animation series and documentaries, among other works.
Among them is the popular game show "Chinese Poetry Conference."
The total time length of the TV and radio shows, of which airing rights have been made free thanks to donations from copyright owners amid the virus battle, has reached nearly 1,000 hours, according to the administration.
