UK Trade Mission to China

The contrasting coverage of the trade mission to China by the UK prime minister David Cameron and the launch by the Chinese of their latest lunar mission provide some clues to the different perspectives of each country’s media. Rajan Datar talks to former Beijing correspondent Michael Bristow about the way the Chinese regard the UK – an ‘old European country’ according to the Global Post and how the Chinese government seeks to project its image internationally. Plus a listener takes issue with views of men represented in this headline "Y chromosome: why men contribute so little”.
