This video tells you all you need to know about the current state of press freedom in the People's Republic of China. While it's often noted that this kind of intimidation is done on a local or provincial rather than national level, I don't buy it- it's far too easy for central authorities to issue directives but passively allow local intimidation to continue unabated.
After being tailed by secret agents during an assignment for ABC TV's Foreign Correspondent program, reporter Stephen McDonell decides to confront his shadows. They're not happy. Foreign Correspondent's investigation of China's underground Christian boom is called 'True Believers' and airs in Australia on Tuesday May 17 at 8PM. It will be available internationally on our website soon after - www.abc.net.au/foreign.
