BBC 4 - Why Democracy? - Please vote for me (2007)

Official Website

Chinese Director Weijun Chen's charming film takes us into the world of Chinese schoolchildren, learning about democracy for the first time as they try to vote for their class monitor.

Elections are pretty uncommon in China, so when the children in a school in Wuhan, Central China are presented with the chance to choose their own class monitor they don't quite know what to make of it. It doesn't take them long to get into the swing of it, though, and soon all sorts of dirty tricks are going on. Urged on by their parents, the candidates launch elaborate campaigns of bribery and coercion.

After tantrums and tears, it's finally time for the vote, and who will win - the sweet girl who woos her voters with her flute playing, the bully who beats his classmates, or the boy who has the best sweets.

Very informative site.

Thank you.

May I ask?
Would you be able to 'get'/ make available :- "The Lost World of Tibet"?
It was shown (and still available for PC owners to download) from BBC's iPlayer site? (Mac Users can't download from there)

Great footage of Tibetan festivals and traditions that will probably never be repeated for many years, if at all.
