Let's hear it for the French On this weeks voices from other lands we celebrate Bastille day, one of the most important festivals on the French calendar. We'll look back on some of the events of the 'year of france in china'.
What began life
as a ten-minute program on CRI is now moving
on to a new stage in its life. Voices from
other lands in its moving on, becoming a half-hour
magazine show devoted to interviews and discussions
on topics concerning China and its ties to
the rest of the world. It will never be our
intention to push an idea on the air, nor
will it ever be our intention to discuss things
in a hard-faced, almost uncomfortably serious
manner. Rather, it is our intention to provide
the setting for insights to be shared, knowledge
to be gained, and ideas to be cherished, be
they of national or international importance.
