February 14th sees the start of the Chinese New Year festivities and the biggest mass movement of people on the planet.
From the factories of Shenzen, Shuzhou and Chengdu millions of people will travel to their traditional family homes to be with friends and family and to join the celebrations.
From the glittering glass and metal towers of Shanghai, from the ancient palaces of Beijing a vast tide of humanity is on the move, many travelling not only across land and sea but across time itself, back through centuries to villages which have never seen an electric light.
All across the globe, at key times and dates, we repeat the rituals which have bound us together for centuries.
We travel to celebrate with family and friends.
Thats what makes us human.
