|aAnita Rani and Justin Rowlatt embark on two epic car journeys across China, navigating congested cities and winding mountain roads, to explore how the country's economic growth, symbolised by its booming car industry, is affecting people's lives. On the first leg of their journey, Anita and Justin discover a country that has developed rapidly, raising millions out of poverty. Yet it faces important challenges that may affect us all: a potential property bubble, increasing greenhouse gas emissions and growing inequality. On the final leg of their journey across China, Anita and Justin discover a country that has developed rapidly, raising millions out of poverty, but which faces important challenges: a lack of healthcare and support for the vulnerable, pollution, and growing inequality.
