The short program shows a typical news stand where many Beijing residents purchase newspapers and magazines, and includes short interviews with a news stand operator and two customers. It was shot and edited by Luke Mines, with the original music by Fernando Fidanza.

The circulation figures for the Beijing Evening News come from ESWN: The Real Circulation Numbers for Beijing Newspapers

After reviewing the video, I fear there might be small inaccuracies when it comes to the stated prices of the glossy magazines. These errors will be corrected in text in this space as soon as possible.
