The Last of "That's Beijing" As We Know It..

...And No "Time Out" Magazine Either

My beloved free English language magazine, “That’s Beijing”, which has been with us since we arrived in Beijing will not be published anymore. Well in fact the producer of the magazine since its debut in October 2001 won’t be involved with the brand “that’s”. The publisher who controls the license ended their cooperation. The producers have decided to start a new magazine called “the Beijinger” starting next month.
And if this wasn’t enough another magazine called “Time Out” couldn’t be found anywhere this month. It turned out that the magazine will probably not appear in print due to China's more stringent foreign media clampdowns in the lead up to the Games.
