I also stumbled upon Dispatches updated by the foreign correspondents - great to see some video and audio linked on it too. It reads a little like a blog version of Correspondent's Report or the Beeb's From Our Own Correspondent - very much the story behind the story.
This post from Stephen McDonell on filming the funeral for the academic Bao Zunxin gives a great insight into press freedom for foreign correspondents in China and the sensitivities authorities still have about those who supported the 1989 student protests Tiananmen Square.
One drawback about Dispatches, some posts have the option for comments others don't.
BTW, listening to Mark Colvin's live broadcasting of election results last weekend made great radio - particularly when crossing to Maxine McKew addressing her supporters in the electorate of Bennelong. Clear and vivid descriptions but giving listeners a sense of suspense as well. Who needed a telly? (Colvin also popped up recently on one my favourite Radio 4 programmes, Broadcasting House, talking about the rough and tumble of sledging in the Australian parliament.)
