Beijing, December 26, 2023, The Europe Today: In observance of the 130th anniversary of the birth of the late Chinese leader Mao Zedong, the China Media Group has orchestrated a series of three radio programs. A compelling three-episode radio drama, spanning from December 26 to 28, meticulously recounts the life of a young Mao Zedong during the pivotal era from the May Fourth Movement in 1919 to the historic convening of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 1921, according to Xinhua.
Concurrently, another program, airing since December 11, intricately explores Mao’s personal odyssey in pursuit of truth, drawing insights from his diaries. This segment delves into the motivations behind Mao’s sporadic diary-keeping, elucidating the evolving style and content across different phases of his life.
Furthermore, a separate radio program, broadcast since December 12, sheds light on Mao’s interactions with the local residents in northern Shaanxi, offering valuable perspectives into his public engagement during that significant period.
