1 x 49 HD
Broadcaster:  CNA

As the Chinese Communist Party celebrates its 100th anniversary from July 2021, this landmark special investigates the key characters and eras that have shaped its turbulent history.


From the revolutionary 1920s, to the Civil War, the Great Leap Forward, the Great Famine, the Cultural Revolution and the reforms by Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, we uncover how these extraordinary events still affect China, to this day.


Did the Great Famine cost more than 15 million lives? How does the Cultural Revolution continue to shape Chinese politics today? What was capitalism like after Mao’s death? 


Through rare and never-before-seen historical footage, expert interviews and eyewitness accounts of the Great Famine, Tiananmen incident, and the Cultural Revolution, we get to know how this one party has so profoundly shaped China, like never before.
