Chinese reporter Haining Liu travels to Beijing and finds out what it was like for people who grew up during the Cultural Revolution and how those who lived under strict communism relate to their children who have had much more material, individualistic lives.  And she hears about new attitudes to work and education as more people choose to study and work and outside the state system.
