There are 50 million people in China who are not ethnically Chinese at all. China is, in fact, a multi-national state composed of 50 different nationalities.

Felix Greene, in a personal view, shows us something of this other China - the Mongolians in the cold north, the Uighers in the vast plains of Sinkiang and a number of smaller minorities living in a remote area near the Laos-Burma borders. In the programme we see how these minority peoples live - their homes, their costumes, their music and colourful festivities - all so different from what comes to our minds when we think of 'China.'

(Felix Greene's China: next Thursday, BBC1, at 8.30 pm (not Scotland). Felix Greene interview: page 15)
