Joseph Campanella successfully communicates the pioneering spirit of Ron Walker and his team of U.S. advance men as they worked with Chinese officials in preparation for Nixon's first visit to China. The narrator's earnest voice expresses Walker's sincerity as the diplomat establishes trust among his Chinese counterparts. Campanella also voices Walker's frustration with the Communist bureaucracy when struggling to build consensus for an acceptable agenda. The program is intriguing because it reveals the friendship and trust that developed among U.S. and Chinese officials despite extreme political and cultural differences.
