Syed Hamid Albar on BBC Hardtalk

Below are some intro from BBC website:

In a HardTalk programme first broadcast on Thursday 13 September 2007, Sarah
Montague talks to Malaysian Foreign Minister Dato Seri Syed Hamid Albar.

Malaysia has just marked fifty years of independence, and there's much
to celebrate.

Living standards have improved immeasurably over the past
five decades, illiteracy has been virtually eradicated and the economy is doing
well.

But do Indian and Chinese Malaysians have as much to celebrate as
the Malay population?

Sarah Montague talks to Dato Seri Syed Hamid Albar
about whether the law giving preferential treatment to Malay and other
indigenous groups is now outdated.
