According to sources at some of China's largest satellite TV stations, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) has required large satellite TV stations across the country to refrain from broadcasting spy dramas or related programs between May and July this year. The Zhejiang, Tianjin, Jiangsu and other major satellite TV stations have all been officially notified by SARFT about the decision. The announcement is thought to be connected with the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party which will be officially celebrated on July 1, 2011.
