The Chinese government is taking a small group of reporters on a tour of Tibet.

The move comes just a month before the 50th anniversary of the escape into exile of the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

In March last year, protests by Tibetan monks caught China by surprise and led to widespread unrest.

James Reynolds reports from Beijing.
