Party games : surviving a children's party( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How will future historians view the 2008 Summer Olympics? Will the Beijing games be viewed as a turning point in Chinese history? Or will they be seen as a spectacular façade concealing the intractability of Chinese leadership? Filmed during China's pre-Olympic fervor, this program follows citizens of varied ages and backgrounds as they help to shape China's inner workings and its image on the global stage. Viewers will meet a preteen gymnast exhausted from her Olympic training, a high school girl striving to join the Communist Party, a rural mayor up for reelection, and a famous artist who, because of his father's persecution under Mao, is uneasy about his role in designing the Olympic Stadium
Getting rich : the quest for wealth in China( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By embracing private enterprise, China has achieved the most rapid economic advance in history. But how much of its success is founded on the abuse and exploitation of workers? This program examines the rise of China's upper class, looking at new philosophies and business tactics that have created millionaires and billionaires in a once-collectivist society. Viewers are introduced to Zuo Zongshen, owner of the Zongshen Industrial Group and one of the richest men in China --as well as two of his factory employees, among the estimated 100 million Chinese who have left rural villages for low-wage urban jobs. Also studied: the nation's alarming rise in workplace injuries and its booming dot-com industry

This second segment looks at women in contemporary China. China's women have always been under pressure: from men, from family, from work. Now more and more are under new pressure -- from themselves -- to take control of their lives; to get an education; to have a career; to marry for love. It's a slow, difficult process, and it is changing China

China from the inside( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth program in a series of four documentaries that surveys China through Chinese eyes to see how history has shaped them, and where the present is taking them. This fourth segment looks at freedom in China examining such questions as: How free are the Chinese people? How free to worship as they please? To learn the truth from the media? To hear the truth from the Communist Party and the government? How can people with a grievance negotiate with the state? Also looks at popular grievances: forced evictions, government cover-up of the AIDS problem, corruption and land grabbing. There were 87,000 officially-recognized cases of public disorder in 2005. The courts frequently refuse to take on sensitive cases, forcing ordinary people to petition the government -- a frustratingly ineffectual process. The cameras go inside a "Re-education through Labor" camp to which women are committed without trial for up to four years for drugs, sex or property offences -- or for petitioning

Bad sugar: "O'odham Indians, living on reservations in southern Arizona, have perhaps the highest rate of Type 2 diabetes in the world.
