Romance of the Three Kingdoms (TV series)


Romance of the Three Kingdoms (TV series)

In 1995, CCTV produced a television adaptation of the novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". It was a 84-part series with 44-minute long episodes.

The whole series took a 1000-strong production group four years to complete, and recruited over 400,000 civilian participants, including divisions of the PLA. Most of the dialogue used were adapted directly from the novel and extensive battle scenes were live-acted. It was CCTV's most expensive television series to date.
