    Default Interesting radio prog: Chinese people in UK/US

    I have listened to this yet:
    CHINA CULTURE
    According to new research, the increasing numbers of Chinese students coming to Britain expect to find themselves in a land of gentle people with good manners and respect, but some of them do not find what they were hoping for.
    Laurie Taylor is joined by Professor Greg Philo, author of a new survey entitled Cultural Transfer; The Impact of Direct Experience on Evaluations of British and Chinese Societies and by Professor Hugode Burgh, director of the China Media Centre at the University of Westminster, to discuss what China is learning back from Britain.
    BBC - Radio 4 - Thinking Allowed

    Looks interesting - but I've got the cricket on at the moment, masochist that I am.

    It starts 16'15" into the main programme - with a tune arranged for string-instruments (it's the signature tune of a quiz programme called University Challenge).
