Chinese New Year and "The Bridge to Japan" soon topic on IN-DEPTHs Asian specials

In-Depth host Thomas Janak talks to Sumi Wang from the Chinese - Irish Cultural Academy ( who introduced the artists from the Sechuan Opera to the audience.
Sumi "at work" - she was very funny and very informative

"The King of changing faces"

Fire breathing and fancy clothes are all part of the celebrations

This scene depicts a husband getting punished by his wife for not listening to her- The reason why he accepts the punishments is because she is very beautiful - and in this case it is certainly true.

Very different and very talented

Thomas introduces the show
As "In-Depth" continues to battle racism it is only fitting to do a few "Asian specials" and there will be two shows in late March and early April:
27.03.2007 "The Bridge to Japan" a talk organised by the Chester Beatty Library featuring Professor Timon Screech from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. His talk explains why Tokyo is not build like any other city in the world.
03.04.2007 "Chinese New Year celebrations" - although Chinese New Year happens in February, it is worth going out on air at any given time during the year. The show features a special report about the performance of the Sechuan Opera at the Chester Beatty Library and features interviews with Chinese and Irish people. It is estimated that approximately 40 000 Chinese people are currently living in Ireland.
So please make sure not to miss these great shows.
For all shows between now and late March see:
