RFA’s innovative programming engages youth on the anniversary of China’s Cultural Revolution

For the 50th anniversary of the Cultural Revolution, RFA’s Mandarin TV team produced an in-depth series on the historic events.

The series included a televised discussion with young people inside China using WeChat. The youth, most of whom knew little or nothing about the Cultural Revolution, asked questions of an expert located in RFA’s D.C. studio.

One young man submitted his question from Tiananmen Square with the Mao portrait in the background.
