    As the high-profile Chinese politician Bo Xilai goes to court over a scandal that has divided the country, his spectacular downfall exposes the messy infighting in the highest echelons of politics. Bo's case lifted the lid on the inner workings of the secretive ruling Chinese Communist Party, and exposed a rift between some of its members. So, how will the Communist Party wrap up this scandal? And what does this mean for China's transparency and Bo's future? To discuss this, Inside Story, with presenter Jane Dutton, is joined by guests: Victor Gao, the director of the China National Association of International Studies, who previously worked in the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Roderic Wye, an associate fellow at the Asia programme at Chatham House; and Steve Tsang, the director of the China Policy Institute at the University of Nottingham.
