Stylist and TV personality Gok Wan has travelled to his ancestral home to explore the largely unseen world of Chinese mass production for a new Channel 4 TV special ‘Made in China’.
Made in China may conjure up images of poor quality or cheap labour, but is that really the case? Gok believes it also represents ingenuity, cutting-edge manufacturing technology and the unparalleled work ethic of the Chinese nation – and he is setting out to prove it.
In the upcoming C4 show, Gok sees how the China he explores sits alongside his own personal journey and the stories his father has told him of his homeland.
Gok is not only dipping his toes in documentary, but you will also get the chance to see him in Gok’s Teens: The Naked Truth – a three-part series for Channel 4 where he gets the chance to draw on personal experience to help give teenagers the advice, confidence and self belief they need to tackle their issues and anxieties.
You can catch Gok’s Teens: The Naked Truth on 31st of January, Channel 4 at 8pm.
Made in China will be aired this Spring.
