Go inside China with PBS

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 31st 2006 8:03AM

chinaPBS will air a four-part documentary on Wednesday, January 10 and Wednesday, January 17 at 9pm titled China from the Inside. The documentary will delve into both the history and current political landscape of China from all perspectives. It will also examine how women are treated in the country, problems with air and water pollution, religion, and the government's slow response to the AIDS epidemic. The four parts of the documentary are:

1. "Power and the People"

2. "Women of the Country"

3. "Shifting Nature"

4. "Freedom and Justice"

China is quickly becoming a major player on the world stage, but little is known about it. The creators of this documentary hope to shed some light on a country that still remains a mystery to many. I love the idea, and hopefully it will be as in-depth as they claim it to be.

in the program's coverage of tibet, there was not one mention of the nature of china's occupation of a sovereign nation. china is an illegal occupying force and pbs has failed to acknowledge this and that is unforgivable.

Hmmm, lessee, a big budget PBS documentary on the last major Communist government on Earth promises to be "in depth".

Somehow I just can't believe that will happen.

How about a big budget PBS documentary on the last major Communist government on Earth that reads like it was written by the Red Army Public Relations Bureau. Much more likely.
