Half a century ago Bingqi (Head of International Relations of Chinese Radio) was awarded a grant for investigating German broadcasting.
The last stop of his German trip was Berlin – for three weeks – and most of this time he spent in my department.
I offered to him everything we knew about how to make radio – and we became friends, colleagues and collaborators – for the rest of our prof. life.
And the Chinese Feature was born.
I deplore deeply his death.
He was gifted with his talents, his clear thinking, his remarkable humor and his strongly feeling heart.
His life in China was not easy and it took strength and courage to master it.
He is 83 years old.
(Final conclusion from the doctor was “multiple organs failure”)
