During a thirty-year career as a print and broadcast journalist Mark Newham's coverage of international affairs and development issues has appeared in almost every quality British newspaper, in international news magazines and on the BBC.

Newham has also acted as a media consultant to the United Nations, the World Bank, the European Union and to China's state-run news agency Xinhua.

He accepted the Xinhua posting for one reason and one reason only – to gain firsthand, inside knowledge of the rules governing China's media mind games… and to see how much both could be bent.

Limp Pigs is the product of that quest.
