Friends in China: Central Perk hits Beijing

The Central Perk cafe immortalised in the US comedy show Friends has opened in the heart of bustling downtown Beijing.

The tiny cafe is a replica of the one in the show, with the handwritten menu on the wall, the brick interior and the iconic couch.

The atmosphere is completed by a TV screening DVDs of Friends with Chinese subtitles. The BBC's Martin Patience spoke to owner Du Xin.
