The programme will be:

An account by myself and Teri of our ‘Diverse China’ trip last year – 21 days through the minor ways of Central and Southern China.

Inside Red China_DVD coverWe will show the recently produced DVD of Inside Red China‘, a 1958 film by then-Society members, Rudall and Ramai Hayward. It gives an honest and unbiased report of China at a time when the West had a very jaundiced view of communism and includes rare historic footage denied to any outside of China at that time and includes the presentation of a Maori cloak to Mao Zedong.

Of course, after the meeting we will retire for dinner at the BBQ Noodle restaurant in Albany.
