The Great Wall of Iron




The Great Wall of Iron
Winner 1989 | Beyond International Group

Much of the world first became aware of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in the tragedy of Tiananmen Square in June 1989. However, only weeks before, filming had been completed on an extraordinary examination of China’s military machine. Boasting unprecedented access to all areas of the People’s Liberation Army, this five-hour documentary reveals with unerring insight and exceptional clarity the enigma which is the modern Chinese army. Executive producers Michael Caulfield and Philip Gerlach, producers Steve Amezdroz and Harold Weldon, and director Scott Hicks have produced the first and, most probably, the last behind-the-lines inquiry into this highly secretive and dominating force. For an investigative report of particularly timeliness and depth, a Peabody to the Beyond International Group for The Great Wall of Iron.
