A series of provocative films about contemporary art and culture. Children of the Revolution
The story of a group of classical music students of the Beijing Central Conservatory who grew up in China during the Cultural Revolution. From being dedicated students of Bach and Beethoven, they became Red Guards devoted to class struggle, then suffered years of exile and hard labour before ending up, against all the odds, as players in some of China's leading orchestras. The film is presented by Anxi Jiang - a piano student at the Conservatory - and centres on her experiences and those of her mother and several of her classmates.
Tonight's programme was filmed entirely in China and includes a wealth of Chinese peasant music, revolutionary songs, western classical compositions and music from the Beijing Opera.

About this project
This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
