The BBC2 Newsnight programme on 18th February 2010 used a Go board provided through an enquiry on the Gotalk discussion group as a backdrop to a piece on US-China relations. Reporter Robert Peston (seen below) played stones on the board, which had some illegal positions, as an animation technique and used the game, calling it Wei Qi, as a metaphor for some aspects of the USA-China relationship.
