Chinese leader Xi Jinping has many names, but what do we really know about him? The Telegraph’s award-winning China Correspondent Sophia Yan is going to find out - but this might be her toughest assignment yet. Wish her luck.
Another series from Sophia Yan is available on this feed, Hong Kong Silenced:
Mass arrests. Newspaper raids. Banned protests. Activists fleeing into exile. A curriculum designed to brainwash. The Telegraph’s award-winning China Correspondent Sophia Yan tells the inside story of how life in Hong Kong was turned upside down in just one year.
A deep dive into Xi Jinping’s younger years, from being sent to a cave to do manual labour during the Cultural Revolution, to his dark family history. As Xi rises through the party, hints of his manifesto begin to emerge. Meanwhile, The Telegraph’s Sophia Yan begins her journey trying to get back into China.
