The artifact-themed documentary If National Treasures Could Talk is a bona fide blockbuster, after a successful first season aired on China Central Television and online earlier this year. Each of the 25 episodes introduced important artifacts from museums nationwide.

It has been viewed more than 10 million times on major video steaming and microblogging websites. And it scores 9.5 out of 10 on Douban, China's leading review and rating website.

The second season is scheduled to be aired in summer, the documentary's CCTV production team announced at a Shanghai event on International Museum Day. A trailer was also released which reveals several featured artifacts, such as the gilt-bronze Changxin Lamp dating to the Western Han Dynasty (202 BC-AD 12). Technologies such as thermal sensing, 3-D scanning and holography are being used to bring a much more vivid effect to the relics.
