China In Revolution
Program Description

Whole Program Description:

This special is the first television production to explore the events in China between 1911 and 1949 from the perspective of the people who lived through those turbulent years. In the course of two films, "Battle for Survival, 1911-1936" and "Fighting for the Future, 1936- 1949," Chinese citizens recall their dramatic pasts. Warlords and bandits, peasants and politicians, small girls sold as child brides, teenage boys tied up and dragged off to the fight at the front--these are the faces and stories behind the battles, from the fall of the Manchu emperor to the establishment of the People's Republic of China.
