Commie Rats getting desperate

BBC: We'd arranged to meet a woman in her village in China's central Hunan Province and to then travel with her by train to Beijing, filming as we went.But we never did get to meet our interviewee.The story we ended up with, however, reveals more about the exercise of power in China than any interview ever could.It is one that involves violence, intimidation and a forced confession - my first in my long reporting experience in China - in which I found myself apologising for "behaviour causing a bad impact" and for trying to conduct an "illegal interview".
