Tiananmen: The People Versus the Party

Tiananmen: The People Versus the Party

Tuesday, June 25, at 9 p.m.
Repeats Wednesday, June 26, at 3 a.m.

Also airs on Fusion on Saturday, June 29, at noon

On June 4, 1989, the world’s biggest, longest and most famous pro-democracy demonstration was brought to a tragic end. The images from those final bloody days still burn bright in our imaginations; the death toll—from the Chinese official figure of 300 to estimates as high as 15,000—is still disputed.

TIANANMEN: THE PEOPLE VERSUS THE PARTY tells the gripping narrative of a period of just seven weeks in which the whole future of China today was founded, where at various turning points the final outcome could have avoided the massive bloodshed. These turning points unfold over two hours in a story told with the drama and pace of a political thriller.
