New Year in the Homeland brings together many famous artists, such as Meritorious artists Xuan Hinh, Thanh Lam, and Minh Thu; singers Tung Duong, Kyo York, Trinh Minh Quan, Thai Thuy Linh, Thu Thuy, violinist Qinie, and others. People's Artist Le Chuc is the artistic advisor for the show.

According to the program's general director, scriptwriter Mai Thanh Tung, the program will tell the story of rediscovering the precious value for everyone, which is family, the happiness of being with loved ones, gathering together, visiting relatives, telling each other what happened in the past year, appreciating what has passed and looking forward to good things.

Combining singing, poetry recitation, dance, drama, documentaries and talks, the performances seamlessly weave together childhood memories of Tet, thoughts and worries about the hectic Tet holidays in modern life, and appreciation of precious values, sending hopes and wishes for the New Year.

"The idea is about journeys on trains and buses where we see our homeland being transformed day by day. It can also be a journey home in the minds of people who are away from home," said Tung.

The program's production crew has captured the Tet atmosphere of soldiers in the Truong Sa (Spratlys) Archipelago and overseas Vietnamese in Germany and Japan.

According to Nguyen Thanh Loi, Editor-in-Chief of Economic&Urban Newspaper, the program's co-host, New Year in the Homeland brings audiences a meaningful time of enjoying music and art, sharing stories and emotions before the Lunar New Year.
