Radio Peking

English language, government-run Chinese radio began in 1947.  Then known as XNCR, their studios were located in a cave at the foot of the Taihang Mountains in northern China.  Operations soon moved to Peking and a name change to Radio Peking took place in April, 1950.  Another name change to Radio Beijing occured in 1983.  China's external radio service is currently known as China Radio International.
