This tape was made at a transitional time in China's modernisation of the late '70s, exploring the use of Chinese comics to fix the mindset of the population. Using two translated stories, and interviews with Chinese exchange students, and the (then) China correspondent for The Guardian, the programme raises the question of whether propaganda is confined to the East alone.
