A series entitled The Chronicle of Laos, exploring the scenery, people, culture and history of the neighbouring nation, is currently screening on Vietnam National Television (VTV).

The first part of the 24-episode series was produced last year, recording the landscape, customs and special festivals in northern Laos, including the Bunpimay (New Year) and Elephant festivals. The second part was completed just before airing of the series began earlier this month.

This second part of the series will bring viewers to Xieng Vang, a small village about 30km from Khammouan Province, where the late President Ho Chi Minh crossed the border to build a revolutionary base.

Viewers will also get to see Savannakhet Province, an area closely connected with the revolutions of Laos and Vietnam, as well as Champasak, which has Laos' largest Vietnamese community of about 5,000 people, many of whom sheltered and protected Vietnamese and Lao soldiers during the war.

The series will also spotlight economic co-operation between the two countries, including projects of the Vietnam-Laos Rubber JSC, the Sekaman 1 hydroelectric project, and the Thasano Rice Research Centre in Savannakhet.

The series is currently airing Monday through Friday at 11.30 pm on VTV1. It was produced by VTV's Ethnic Language Department in co-ordination with Nghe An Television.
