Andrew Marr's History of the World China's Cultural Revolution

Andrew Marr explores the Chinese Cultural Revolution and the fall and rise of Deng Xiaoping. He looks at the changing fortunes of Deng within China’s ruling Communist Party, his relationship with Chairman Mao Zedong, and the role his economic reforms played in the emergence of China as a superpower. Teacher notes: Create a timeline which charts the rise, fall and rise again of Deng Xiaoping. Label significant events in his life and rate them on a score of 1-10. Show events from Deng Xiaoping's life, from his early days as a militant member of the Communist party, through the Cultural Revolution and his political comeback after the death of Chairman Mao. As a plenary, students could be asked to consider whose legacy is greater, Mao or Deng Xiaoping?
