This is China: Pandaland

The giant panda, arguably the the most famous symbol of China, has a distinct fondness for a vegetarian diet.

However, this gastronomic partiality almost cost the species its life as only a limited number of pandas found shelter - and food - after humans began cutting down bamboo groves.

In the mid 1970s, more than 120 pandas died of starvation, which became the starting point for a large-scale operation to preserve the animals.

This edition of This is China, Pandaland, tells the story.
