Chinese smog documentary a phenomenal hit

Millions of outraged Chinese have watched a documentary on the country's air pollution problems, sparking a national debate on environmental problems.

The documentary Under the dome is a viral success; it was posted online on Saturday. By Monday evening, it had more than 175 million views on popular Chinese video sites.

The film has surprisingly been left untouched by the government, and the topic dominated Chinese social networks over the weekend.
