Chinese New Year isn’t just a holiday – it's the largest annual human migration on Earth. We follow two workers as they travel across the country to their home town, the only time all year they’ll see their children.

Dateline reporters scour the globe to bring you a world of daring stories. Our reputation is for fearless and provocative reporting. Australia's beloved, award winning and longest running international current affairs program.
