China is the one of the biggest producers and consumers of alcohol in the world. With as many secrets as there are languages, we take a unique look at the drinking habits of a country yet to come to terms with increasing alcohol problems. David Arthur presents for the first time findings from his pioneering research into Chinese drinking habits and their cautious moves in dealing with its consequences.
