Beijing, China: The UN's Olympic volunteer celebration on 7 August, organized by UNV and UNDP, was only the second such event in the last five years to be covered on China's top prime time news programme 'Xinwen Lianbo'. It featured on central, provincial and local media news channels across the country from 7.00 to 7.30 pm.  The estimated audience was 400 million people.

China's leading English newspaper, China Daily, featured a large photograph of the event on page four on 8 August. Below are links to English- and Chinese-language coverage.
