China is broadcasting an eight-episode TV documentary featuring more than 10 former officials above the provincial level who had been removed from office over corruption. 

The documentary, "Always on the Road," was jointly made by the Publicity Department of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and China Central Television, and is being aired on CCTV and on CCDI's website.

Several former officials made public confessions in the documentary, including Hebei Province Party chief Zhou Benshun, Yunnan Province Party chief Bai Enpei, and Sichuan Province deputy Party chief Li Chuncheng. Former senior military officials also made rare appearances on the documentary after being sacked.

Zhou said that he spoiled his children and some so-called business friends. "It was through my own fault that I ended up like this," Zhou said in the documentary.

"I should accept the punishment of the Party. Life is a live show and can't be lived again," Li told the documentary.

The film crew visited 22 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, shooting more than 40 cases, interviewing more than 70 experts and discipline inspection cadres.
