In order to immunise the Peoples Republic of China against bourgeois restoration Mao Zedong embarked on the "Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution" in 1966. This was mainly directed against intellectuals. Up to 1976 the whole country was plunged into destructive chaos, shaking the country’s social foundations. The Cultural Revolution is considered today as a "grave left-wing mistake" for which Mao Zedong was responsible. Whether Mao launched a campaign of ideological purification in 1966 to keep China from becoming capitalist or to solidify his power remains a subject for debate. Only the disastrous consequences are certain. This series presents the definitive history of the Cultural Revolution, its background, and aftermath, blending an incredible array of documentary footage with discussion by Chinese contemporaries, diplomats, and scholars, including Roxanne Witke, the only Westerner to interview Mao's wife, Jiang Qing. Chinese witnesses of the time, who all now live abroad, tell of their experiences: about torture, flight and many years of exile.

In 1532, the fifty-four-year-old Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro led a force of 167 men, including his four brothers, to the shores of Peru. Unbeknownst to the Spaniards, the Inca rulers of Peru had just fought a bloody civil war in which the emperor Atahualpa had defeated his brother Huascar. Pizarro and his men soon clashed with Atahualpa and a huge force of Inca warriors at the Battle of Cajamarca. Despite being outnumbered by more than two hundred to one, the Spaniards prevailed—due largely to their horses, their steel armor and swords, and their tactic of surprise. They captured and imprisoned Atahualpa. Although the Inca emperor paid an enormous ransom in gold, the Spaniards executed him anyway. The following year, the Spaniards seized the Inca capital of Cuzco, completing their conquest of the largest native empire the New World has ever known. Peru was now a Spanish colony, and the conquistadors were wealthy beyond their wildest dreams.

Genre: History

With new research and previously unavailable interviews, The Last Campaign provides an intimate and absorbing historical narrative that goes right to the heart of America's deepest despairs—and most fiercely held dreams—and tells us more than we had understood before about this complicated man and the heightened dramas of his times. After John F. Kennedy's assassination, Robert Kennedy looked past his own pain to that of this country, and he sought to offer it hope. And when he announced that he was running for president, the country united in hope behind him. Over the action-packed eighty-two days of his campaign, Americans were inspired by Kennedy's promise to lead them toward a better time―until an assassin's bullet stopped this last great stirring public figure of the 1960s.

Entre 1958 et 1962, la Chine a vécu une immense tragédie. Le « Grand bond en avant » conçu par Mao pour que la Chine dépasse à marche forcée la production de la Grande-Bretagne et gagne son autonomie face à son hégémonique voisin l’URSS, a entraîné une famine dramatique et provoqué la mort de 30 à 50 millions de personnes. « Trois années de catastrophe naturelles » : c’est ainsi aujourd’hui que le parti communiste chinois justifie ce terrible bilan. Mais le drame se double ici d’un mensonge puisqu’au moment où la Chine mourrait de faim, les greniers étaient pleins. Fondé sur des témoignages inédits de survivants, des archives peu connues et des interviews des principaux historiens ayant enquêté sur cette catastrophe, ce film raconte la folie du « Grand bond en avant », décrypte les mécanismes et choix politiques qui ont provoqué la famine, dénonce l’incroyable secret qui l’a entourée et le mensonge qui se prolonge, aujourd’hui encore, sur le bilan des responsabilités et des pertes humaines.
