Punters - Cultural Transfer

Dr Teela Sanders, Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Leeds, talks about her latest research findings on the complex and unexpected relationships which develop between sex workers and their regular clients.

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.
