A TV drama on late geophysicist Huang Danian is expected to hit the small screen on Oct. 12.

Directed by Du Jun, the six-episode drama tells the story of how Huang devoted his life to scientific research.

The drama was shot from mid August to early September at Jilin University where Huang worked till his death.

"Making the show gave me a deeper understanding of Huang's patriotism, which also purified my soul," said Ding Yongdai, who plays Huang.

The program was co-produced by Jilin provincial movie and TV drama group, Jilin provincial capital fund of culture, and Shanghai Jiatong movie and television media corporation.

It will premiere at prime time on Channel 1 of China Central Television.

Huang, known for his work in deep earth exploration technology, was one of the first to participate in the field, and came to work at Jilin University in 2009, after studying and working in Britain for 18 years.

In the following years, he helped China in a number of technical fields, transforming the nation into one of the world's leaders in deep earth exploration.

Huang died from bile duct cancer aged 58 in January.
