"[T]he ABC finally set a screening date for the controversial documentary, The 10 Conditions of Love, on the life of Uighur activist Rebiya Kadeer. ... The ABC's planned screening on May 6 of the TV documentary about the Uighur leader, Ms Kadeer, is certain to cause renewed controversy with Beijing, which tried to prevent the Melbourne Film Festival showing the documentary last year. ... It is understood the Australia Network, the international television network broadcast into Asia by the ABC on behalf of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, has also bought the documentary. Australia Network is believed to be seeking permission to broadcast into China." Greg Sheridan, The Australian, 1 April 2010.
