The KBS documentary "Chamagodo" has advanced to the finals as a candidate for the International Emmy Awards in the documentary section.
It is the first time for a Korean TV program to advance to the finals in the leading global broadcasting awards. The winner will be announced on November 24th in New York.
The documentary "Chamagodo" --- or "The Asian Corridor in Heaven" --- takes viewers on a tour of a five-thousand-kilometer route from China's southwestern Yunnan Province to Tibet, Nepal and India. The HD documentary introduces the culture, history and civilization of the area.
Chamagodo is known as the oldest trading route in the world that predates the Silk Road by 200 years.
The HD documentary won the Grand Prize from the Korean Broadcasting Commission earlier this year.
