Faces of China

Title

Faces of China

Description

In 1983, a little more than a decade after President Richard Nixon visited the People's Republic of China, a Buffalo TV news team accompanied a cancer researcher to the Mainland. Dr. Thomas Dougherty, of Roswell Park Cancer Institute, had developed a new treatment using laser beams and a special drug, designed to shrink non-bulky tumors. The Chinese had adopted the technique. During the journey, WIVB-TV reporter Rich Newberg and photographer Mike Mombrea Jr. were able to capture a unique inside view of Communist China, as its doors began opening wider to Western travelers, scientists, and companies.
Originally aired on WIVB-TV.
