When Titans Clash

9 x 48 HD
Broadcaster:  CNA

As the relationship between the world's two superpowers - China and the US - grows ever more tense, it has never been of more importance to understand this titanic power struggle. In this landmark, award-winning series, we investigate the historical and contemporary forces driving the conflict, and assess how it could develop in the future.


This series' broad scope offers a comprehensive picture of this crucial issue. The first season begins with a historical look at China's Century of Shame alongside US deindustrialisation, leading all the way up to tensions over Hong Kong and Covid. We delve into the ongoing disputes over trade and tech, examining their roots and pondering whether these may erupt into full financial war. The season then finishes with an examination of the volatile struggle for hegemony in South-East Asia.


Season two starts with a focus on the Indo-Pacific region as countries seek closer ties with the US amid accusations from China of setting the region on a warpath. The season then focuses on the simmering border tensions between China and neighbouring India after fatal clashes in the last few years before closing on the pressing issue of Taiwan.


With exclusive access on the ground in China, the US, and across the wider region, this series provides balanced coverage of different perspectives on these urgent and increasingly dangerous issues.
