Instead, the country’s TV regulator provided a list of 86 programs that channels can broadcast ahead of the Oct. 1 anniversary date, which marks the founding of the modern Chinese state by the Communist Party.

The recommended shows focus on patriotic themes, such as the rise of the Chinese nation, its growing affluence and power, and the stories of national heroes, the National Radio and Television Administration, or NRTA, said in a statement posted to WeChat Wednesday.

The ban, which extends to modern dramas as well, will run for 100 days.
