From the Back Cover:

Definitive, insightful and unforgettable, China: A Century of Revolution is an astonishingly candid view of a once-secret nation. This powerful program takes a remarkable first-hand look at China's tumultuous history, examining its social, political and cultural upheaval through eyewitness accounts, rare archival film footage and insightful commentary. From the beginning of his rule in 1949 to his death in 1976, Moa Zedong and his colleagues attempted to forge a "new China" from a country mired in poverty and devastated by decades of war. Yet the Mao years would bring the new People's Republic of China little stability. Rare interviews with Communist Party members and ordinary citizens involved with history's largest political experiment, reveal the turbulence, famine, violent campaigns and purges which destroyed the lives of more than one million people.
