China: A Century of Revolution

Crew
Directed by Sue Williams


CHINA: A CENTURY OF REVOLUTION is a six-hour tour de force journey through the country’s most tumultuous period. First televised on PBS, this award-winning documentary series presents an astonishingly candid view of a once-secret nation with rare archival footage, insightful historical commentary and stunning eyewitness accounts from citizens who struggled through China’s most decisive century. CHINA IN REVOLUTION charts the country’s most violent era where decades of civil war and foreign invasions led to the bloody battle for power between Mao Zedong and Chiang Kai-shek. THE MAO YEARS examines the turbulent era of Mao’s attempts to forge a “new China” from the war-ravaged and poverty-stricken nation. Mao’s death begins BORN UNDER THE RED FLAG, which follows the country’s new leadership of Deng Xiaoping and its unlikely transformation into an extraordinary hybrid of communist-centralized politics with an ever-expanding free market economy. Monumental in scope, CHINA: A CENTURY OF REVOLUTION is critical viewing for anyone interested in this increasingly powerful and globally influential country.

Part One: China in Revolution 1911–1949 (1989)
Part Two: The Mao Years 1949–1976 (1994)
Part Three: Born Under the Red Flag 1976–1997 (1997)
