Documentary Description


Archives long kept secret shed light China's inner workings during Mao's remarkable rise and rule:

* Secrets held for decades are exposed in this incisive series.

* Highly-placed sources and leading experts reveal long-suppressed stories.

* Go beyond the myth to examine how this visionary bent the world's largest nation to his will.

They are the stories that have been suppressed or overlooked for years and even generations. They expose the dark side of heroes, the humanity of villains, and the behind-the-scenes deals and bargains struck on the eve of history's most important events. Filled with extraordinary footage and interviews with eyewitnesses and experts, DECLASSIFIED illuminates fresh facets of some of the most compelling personalities and moments of the past.



He was the 20th Century's answer to Napoleon--a brilliant tactician, a political and economic theorist, and a statesman who ruled a billion people for three decades. In death, he has become divine, worshiped as a god in a godless country. Considering who and what he ruled, Mao, with his Little Red Book, might just be the single most powerful human being who ever lived. DECLASSIFIED mines formerly guarded vaults and archives to reveal untold stories in a relentless search for the truth behind the legend.
