Understanding China

The purpose of “Understanding China” is to improve the understanding of China for American audiences, to allow us to see China through Chinese eyes. We have a small studio in Beijing, and another small studio in Honolulu, and we link them up iive in a virtual studio.

The program profiles Chinese leaders in the fields of investment, technology, trade, culture, education, diplomacy and the arts. Each program is 30 minutes long, hosted by investor and author Michael North, with an informal interview format augmented by carefully researched stills, graphics and video, and simultaneous Mandarin translation. 

Understanding China is both entertaining and informative for general audiences in the United States and China. It is useful for anyone who wishes to understand the people of China, and how to connect with vast Chinese markets.

US Tzu Chi 360

USTzuChi360 is a television program aiming to document the full scope of the American Tzu Chi experience and to encourage and empower those who watch it. In USTzuChi360, people from many different races, religions, and experiences meet and interact. But its stories clearly show that love and compassion is universal.

USTzuChi360 have shown volunteers on charity missions going to other countries like Haiti, Chile, Germany, Central America, as well as interacting with people from every continent while in America. There are stories of South African volunteers at a United Nations conference, and stories of college students picking up trash on lonely dirt roads across America. There are stories of homeless hot meals in Chicago and Food Backpacks for the school children in San Francisco and Los Angeles. There are also stories of Tzu Chi’s clinics and Medical Outreaches, Tzu Chi schools and academies, and the public schools Tzu Chi partners with. These stories reveal that sometimes a physical need for food or shelter or medical care shows a deeper need to be loved and respected. Love is as much a human need as food or shelter, and fulfilling this basic need allows people to feel like they have space to breathe and to give as well.

USTC360 not only shows stories of people from many different backgrounds and religions, but it is targeted towards people from the many different backgrounds. Sometimes there is a sense of helplessness and hopelessness even in America. The principals of mindful living and selfless giving becoming an act of self-cultivation and self-help, of feeling empowered to do good and thus empowering others, are woven into the backbone of the show itself. Through the show, USTzuChi360 is delivering Tzu Chi Foundation and Dharma Master Cheng Yen's philosophies to the American public. USTC360's main goal is to reach as many people as possible, whatever race, religion, or walk of life they come from.
