British geographer, conservationist and author William Lindesay has had a lifelong obsession with the Great Wall of China.
Three decades ago, he left his home on Merseyside to live near the wall so he might better be able to study it. In 2016 he and his family travelled 15,000km (9,320 miles) around the wall network, filming it from the air with a drone. Mr Lindesay and his sons, Jim and Thomas, spoke to the BBC about their epic journey and how they shot it.
Footage by James and Thomas Lindesay at Depictograph.
Produced by Anna Jones and Simeon Paterson

Asides from the walls built by Han people, Jurchen people also built roughly 2000 km walls to keep the 'barbarians' out, and Tangut people built some part of the wall in Mongolia and Mongolians built some walls too. Sometimes you have to love those nomadic cousins.

Is it amazing that an ancient wonder of China was filmed by people with a modern Chinese-made DJI drone? It truly shows that the continuation, resilience and adaptability of Chinese civilisation, the greatest in a sense.

Looks like a scale model of Trump wall with miniature Trump Towers from where hotel guests will be able to gaze out at peasants in Mexico or from the other side of their Trump Tower hotels, look out in wonder at the USA Trump Dynasty made great!

China's territory is originally INSIDE THE WALL. Don't forget and don't approve of CCP's aggression to OUTSIDE THE WALL.

*As a child, I remember the legend of a woman whose husband died building the wall. She cried for so long that part of the wall collapsed revealing the bones of her husband which were later buried.*

The video is about the great wall of china - not Donald trump. We are talking about an amazing historicall achievement that can be seen from the moon. Why spoil it by talking about politician? By the way - great video. Awesome camera work. The scenery is absolutely breath taking.
