BEIJING (AFP): An online documentary on China’s notorious smog has become a viral sensation with more than 155 million views just one day after it was released, state media said Monday. Under the Dome, a documentary privately produced by Chai Jing, a former anchor with state broadcaster China Central Television, detailed causes of atmospheric pollution in the country. They included slack government supervision and lenient penalties for polluters.
The 103-minute film was first uploaded on domestic websites on Saturday and had been viewed more than 155 million times a day later, the Global Times said.
