China's poor use single TV to debate Premier Wen Jiabao

China's Premier Wen Jiabao has delivered a strong warning about the ''urgent'' need for reforms, without which, he said, tragedies such as the Cultural Revolution could still happen.

He was speaking after his last National People's Congress news conference, and said he may invite some of his critics for face-to-face talks.
