Dan Rather Reports will air what has now become the last U.S. television interview with Chinese activist Ai Weiwei. On Sunday, Ai was arrested at the Beijing airport by authorities and he hasn't been seen or heard from since.

A crew from Dan Rather Reports has been in China for the past several weeks and they spoke at length with Ai Weiwei at his Beijing studio. During the interview he speaks of his fear of being arrested.

One of the most famous Chinese dissidents, Ai Weiwei is also a world renowned artist and architect. He designed the so-called "birds nest" stadium that was the centerpiece of China's 2008 Olympic Games. But he has also been a constant thorn in the side of Chinese authorities, especially with his postings on the Internet. He's been detained before and suffered a brain hemorrhage after a beating by police.
