A two-part special report by Mark Brayne on the People's Liberation Army of China.
1: The People's Army?
For months before the bloody events of Tiananmen Square, reporter Mark Brayne and a joint BBC and Australian television team were filming with units of this huge fighting force.
No Western cameras have had such access.
Rarely have serving Chinese soldiers spoken so frankly to outsiders.
This film traces the bloody story of how Mao Tse-Tung 's peasant army brought
Communism to power in 1949 and kept it there during the turbulent days of the Cultural Revolution. It examines the paradox of a modern army that insists it serves the people yet is ready to kill its fellow citizens when ordered. (Part 2 tomorrow at 9. 00pm)

A compelling and imaginative film from Switzerland records a startling series of chain reactions within an improbable, continuous sequence of precisely unbalanced constructions involving fire, water, gravity and chemistry.
Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss use games to open up our understanding of the world's natural forces. Their work pushes the mundane to the point of magic.
Directed by PETER FISCHLI and DAVID WEISS
Produced by T AND c FILM AG
