If you click forty minutes into the broadcast (that is almost precisely when to start the clip) there is a seven minute presentation on the growth of Buddhism in the People's Republic of China that is going on with the state's full support. The segment speaks about how the one child policy is leading to a generation of spoiled children. China hopes that Buddhism will teach the public about compassion to counter the spoiled attitude. Also, China is experiencing a tremendous amount of pollution and the country hopes it will teach people about responsible action to curb pollution. The commentator of the piece said that the closeness of Buddhism and China is only likely to increase because the state sees Buddhism as teaching the country valuable lessons.

Again click on the trail of the newscast 40 minutes into the segment to see the entire seven minute segment.
