The village that China says does not exist

In China's rush to develop, thousands of farmers are moved off their land every year to make way for new roads, buildings and reservoirs, with many receiving little or no compensation.

But one village in northern China has chosen to make a stand against the authorities by setting up a new settlement - a stand which has cost them their identities.

Martin Patience visited Blue Dragon Village to see life there after a new reservoir forced the community to move.
