Looking For Mao
Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

The diminishing influence of Mao Tse Tung in mainland China today. Only seven years after Mao's death, it is clear that China is undergoing another revolution. This is a revolution of political and social relaxation. FRONTLINE explores what has been retained and what has been rejected from the days of the Cultural Revolution.
