PART ONE (disc 1) - China in Revolution, 1911-1949 - In this first of a series of three films documenting the economic and political development of China, the fall of the last emperor begins a series of struggles between opposing political factions. In China: A Century of Revolution - China in Revolution, 1911-1949, the Communist Party and the Nationalist Party are shown engaging in a rivalry that brought out two powerful foes, Mao Zedong and Chiang Kai-shek. Allies at first, then bitter enemies, they battled in a civil war eventually won by the Communists in 1949. Thus began the leadership of Chairman Mao. (

PART TWO (disc 2) - The Mao Years, 1949-1976 - China: A Century of Revolution - The Mao Years, 1949-1976 is the second in the series of three films depicting the struggle of China to realize its economic and political goals. Now firmly under Communist Party leadership, following the direction of Chairman Mao Zedong, China must pursue the security of economic strength in order to support its enormous population. Rarely seen footage is used to illustrate the changes the country must undergo to feed its people and still adhere to strict party doctrine. Mao's Great Leap Forward resulted in a terrible famine. (

PART THREE (disc 3) - Born Under the Red Flag, 1976-1997 - Mao Zedong's death in 1976 left a legacy of overwhelming poverty and political unrest in China. In the time since his death, there has been a new vigor in the attitude of its people and more of an interest in the outside world, which China has long held at bay. In China: A Century of Revolution -- Born Under the Red Flag, 1976-1997, the last in the series of three films, the long suppressed voices of its populace begin to be heard. The film depicts students, peasants, political prisoners, and revolutionaries who find an audience for their views. (
