HOW THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY CRUSHED DEMOCRACY

Thirty years ago, in the centre of China's communist capital, millions of students and citizens staged weeks of protests calling for democracy.

The students and their fellow protestors stared down their government in the full gaze of the world's media, demanding an end to totalitarian rule.

Then, the People's Liberation Army turned its guns, and its tanks, on its own people.

Three decades on, Tremble and Obey vividly brings the story of these momentous times to life, drawing upon a trove of vision and audio captured by ABC reporters and crews in that astonishing spring of 1989. This incredible archive stored away by the ABC for 30 years has now been carefully pieced together to show how the shocking events unfolded.
