China bans Time travels (in film and on television)
Reacting to the growing trend of time-travel themed dramas produced in China, the General Bureau of Radio, Film and Television called a halt to the making of this type of television series.
The authority’s decision was made on the Television Director Committee Meeting on April 1st and stated that "The time-travel drama is becoming a hot theme for TV and films. But its content and the exaggerated performance style are questionable. Many stories are totally made-up and are made to strain for an effect of novelty. The producers and writers are treating the serious history in a frivolous way, which should by no means be encouraged anymore."
Given the date reported of this Committee Meeting, one can doubt if all the above is not just a April Fool's Day joke!
