Cameron visit overshadows space launch on Chinese news
PM's state visit to China is featured prominently on China's evening news bulletins

The Prime Minister's visit to China has received plenty of attention in the British press, but how has it been received in the world's next big superpower?
David Cameron's arrival featured prominently on state television's evening news bulletins, with China Central Television (CCTV) allocating around eight minutes, or one-third of their 7pm broadcast, to the state visit.
The news was featured above the launch of the country's first-ever unmanned moon probe, but followed a five-minute report into a major conference between national leaders and thousands of Chinese expat representatives.
According to The Telegraph's Beijing bureau staff, this amounted to an unusually generous - though not unprecedented - level of coverage for a visit from a foreign leader.
For example, Putin's visit in October 2011 only took up around five minutes on the same bulletin - although it did have to contend with a visit from the party secretary of Vietnam Communist Party that same day.
