China’s Magic Weapon – 23 August 2021 – 23/8/2021 – Monday – BBC Two

Governments around the world are uncovering secret operations to expand China’s influence – the work of a little-known branch of the Chinese Communist Party called the United Front Work Department. President Xi has called it his ‘magic weapon’.

Jane Corbin investigates this powerful but shadowy organisation. Has influence become interference as China bids to become the most powerful nation on earth?
