Dispatches- Undercover in Tibet

For all those interested to learn more about Tibet, I would say this programme is a "must see".

It is Channel 4's Dispatches with an episode entitled "Tibet Undercover".

The film was made with extraordinary bravery by Tibetan exile, Tash Despa.

"To make this film, Tash Despa returns to the homeland he risked his life to escape 11years ago, to carry out secret filming with award-winning, Bafta-nominated director Jezza Neumann (Dispatches Special: China's Stolen Children). Risking imprisonment and deportation, he uncovers evidence of the "cultural genocide" described by the Dalai Lama."

It is 48 minutes long but if you have the time or can find the time I would recommend it as an education on the subject of Tibet. It does not hide the recent violence by some in Lhasa but does give the terrible background to life in Tibet and shows the brutality of the Chinese regime towards Tibetans and their way of life.

This is the link if you want to see on a bigger picture.
