China - Part 1
Tuesday 13th June 2006


Power and the People
How do the values of the ruling Chinese Communist Party translate into daily life?
The Party bases its legitimacy on delivering both stability and the conditions for prosperity.
But stability is under threat as economic boom is leaving millions at the margin.
Government officials are increasingly seen as profiteers, rather than public servants, and public trust in the Party is waning.
This episode features Party meetings, military patrols along China's border with Kazakhstan and footage of officials in Tibet trying to impose authority at the grass roots. But in Shadong province - just south of Beijing - a village election takes place.

China - Part 2
Tuesday 20th June 2006


Women of the Country
One woman in China kills herself every four minutes.
With the highest female suicide rate in the world, China's women talk candidly about the pressures on them, particularly those left to tend homes and look after children in rural areas while husbands and sons are working towards the "economic miracle" in the cities.
Film makers follow a migrant couple returning for a visit to their village home... and the children they have not seen for a year.
They also explore the plight of unwanted baby girls, the discrimination suffered by Xinjiang's Muslim women, and the younger generation of women who are taking control of their lives in search of an education, a career and a love marriage.

China - Part 3
Tuesday 27th June 2006


Shifting Nature
China is trying to feed 20% of the world's population on 7% of the world's arable land. And a third of the world uses water from China's rivers.
Rapid industrialisation and climate change, however, have led to bad air, polluted rivers and drought. And rather than clamping down on polluters, local government often protects local industries.
Along the Huai river's main tributary, 50,000 people suffer from cancer and in one village alone, 118 people have died.
In this episode we see shocking images from "cancer villages", and hear from green activists, Party officials, academics and scientists as they wrestle with environmental damage.

China - Part 4
Tuesday 04th July 2006


Freedom and Justice
Democracy is stirring in China... closely monitored by the Beijing government.
Religious freedom is limited in an atheist state, and some groups - Buddhist, Muslim, Christian - are controlled.
Extraordinary footage illustrates increasing social unrest, in both villages and cities, as China's people demand their rights.
In Taishi village, residents sought to use the law to impeach and remove its corrupt leaders.
Praised by the leading Party newspaper in China one minute, the village was overrun with police and militia the next.
Frank interviews with Chinese people from Tibetan temples to law courts and labour camps, all grapple with the issue of how to make China fair as well as prosperous.
