The numerous ethnic peoples scattered around China were traditionally regarded as exotic but backward and of little cultural value. Notions of progress and civilisation have been mainly derived from socialism or from the majority Han culture. But now, with greater cultural freedoms, massive internal migration and new forms of cultural representation by artists from non-Han backgrounds, minority cultures are suddenly of greater interest. Isabel Hilton reports from Beijing for Radio 3's Focus on China season, talking to Han writers and academics who have found in ethnic cultures a way to broaden their own understanding of China. Producer Anthony Denselow
