A 55-episode television drama-In the Name of the People - made its debut last month on Hunan Television, focusing on power struggles between government officials and their ingenious schemes for embezzling money and lining their own pockets.

"The stories in the TV series are so real," said Yang Guosheng, from Nanjing, Jiangsu province. "The scene that featured a forced demolition was reminiscent of what I have personally witnessed."
