The Story of China: SACU Talk by Professor Michael Wood
March 15, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Illustrated with film clips, Michael Wood reflects on some of the themes in his recent highly praised series on Chinese history, and looks forward to his forthcoming film on the 40th anniversary of Deng’s Reform and Opening Up.
Historian and broadcaster Michael Wood is Professor of Public History at the University of Manchester and author of some 120 documentary films which have been shown worldwide.
Of his ‘Story of China‘ series the Chinese state news agency Xinhua said it had “transcended the barriers of ethnicity and belief and brought something inexplicably powerful and touching to the TV audience.”
