GLC has participated in a radio discussion on overdraft charges on 'People in the Know', a current affairs programme on China Radio International in Beijing.
GLC's Mike Dailly was invited to talk to the show's host, Nigel Ballard, about campaign work in the UK, and developments around the world, on challenging bank charges. Bank fees is an issue of growing interest in China. China Radio International, (CRI) is the only overseas broadcaster in the People's Republic of China.
CRI is one of the "three central media organizations in China" owned by the state along with China National Radio (CNR) and China Central Television (CCTV). People In the Know is China's only English-language current affairs program. PIK covers events that shape not only China, but the world as well.
Originally known as 'Ask The Minister,' People In the Know is designed to give CRI listeners the views of experts and 'people in the know.' Foreign guests, including world leaders, have taken part in People In the Know to tackle tough issues, such as economics, diplomacy and national and international politics. CRI broadcasts across China, and the station is relayed around the world as an international service.
The show goes out next Monday, and can also be heard online.
