Jeremy Paxman on China as a superpower
Jeremy Paxman examines China's growing influence in the world and the country’s 'grand ambition' to become a superpower. He talks to some young Chinese students about the prospect of China becoming a superpower in the 21st century and interviews a university professor who claims China's world status rests on the political decisions of the ruling Communist Party. However, he also speaks to a Chinese dissident who disputes that China will become a superpower because he believes restrictions on freedom of speech make the country unattractive for migration. First broadcast on. First broadcast on 'Newsnight' in January 2012.
