Countdown to the Olympics

The BBC World Service program Changing World recently had a special report about human rights and the Beijing Olympics. From the show’s introduction:

The opening ceremonies for the Games of the 29th Olympiad will be held August 8th. When the Games were awarded to Beijing seven years ago, China vowed to improve its record of human rights. As the Countdown to the Olympics enters its final days, the BBC’s Gerry Northam investigates whether China has kept that promise.

Podcasts of the two-part series can be heard here.
