The Lost Voices of Tiananmen – Part one

picture-14From BBC World Service:

James Miles has a unique insight into the way China works based on over 20 years’ experience as a correspondent there.

He was an eye-witness to the events leading up to the protests in 1989 and saw scenes of bravery and brutality.

James looks at the key trigger points that led to the Beijing Spring – a flowering of the pro- movement which culminated in over a million anti-government protesters gathering in Tiananmen Square.

The programme uses archive material recorded at the time to punctuate and illustrate events, and examines a contemporary, growth-orientated China that has evolved since that significant time.
