Is TikTok being censored?

Sarah Best

9th December 2019

This podcast from BBC Beyond Today explores how TikTok, an app for making short videos was used to create a video about raising awareness of the detention of Uighur Muslim's in China.

Feroza Aziz's video started showing her demonstrating makeup techniques but as the video progresses she begins to discuss the issue mentioned above in more depth.

This video could be used for Beliefs in Society (significance of religion and religiosity in the contemporary world) and The Media (new media, relationship between media, their content and presentation).
