4:07 The Sunday Feature: Missing Histories: China and Japan (Part 2 of 2)
They are Asia’s economic giants – yet the historical record of Japan and China continues to cause tensions.
In a two-part BBC Freedom 2014 series programme, Japanese journalist Mariko Oi and Chinese journalist Haining Liu, visit each other's country to explore what their troubled pasts mean today.
In programme two, Japanese journalist Mariko Oi and Chinese journalist Haining Liu, travel around China, including the city of Nanjing, where Japanese forces committed rapes and mass killings during the war. They explore how events like these are remembered in modern China and ask why the young Chinese can consume Japanese pop culture while demonstrating against Japan’s historical record. But is China really ready to face up to its own history? The pair discover that, despite the deep cultural links between their nations, history remains a barrier.
