Preview – Unreported World: China’s Pop Idols

Marcel Nbomb and Saber

The new series of the award-winning gritty documentary series, Unreported World, returns and to start the new series the programme explores the fascinating world of China’s up-and-coming pop stars.

Inspired by the world of hip-hop, British punk and the slick routines of Korean pop, these teens aspire to be world musicians, yet Marcel Theroux and director Sarah Collinson reveal that they are, in fact, constantly oppressed by increasing censorship and a deeply authoritarian government.

Unreported World, Friday, 7.30 pm – Channel 4
