There is a one hour programme on BBC Two right now called Chinatown. This is part two out of three (the first one was broadcasted last week, next one next week). In this part, the Beeb explores the hidden world of illegal Chinese (China) immigrants and how their lives revolves in the UK. As they dodge police and try to overcome the language barrier, their families in rural China has no idea on how difficult a life their relatives in the UK has to overcome.
The Chinatown 'elders' are pretty pathetic though. They do fit into the stereotype of a bunch of old fatties sitting in a Chinese restaurant eating while discussing Britain's Chinese politics by babbling out incoherent mumblings on philosophical ideals or whatever.
