Documentary commemorating 70th anniversary of participation in Korean War to be aired
BEIJING, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- A six-episode documentary "For Peace" is scheduled for prime-time release on Sunday evening on China's major TV broadcaster CCTV.
The documentary, with each episode lasting around 50 minutes, is dedicated to commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) army entering the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to help in the war to resist U.S. aggression.
The documentary fully reflects the nature of justice and great victory of the war, and recounts CPV soldiers' heroic deeds and revolutionary spirit during the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea (1950-1953).
Two episodes will be aired every day on CCTV and will be available later on other channels and major digital news outlets.
On Oct. 19, 1950, as requested by the DPRK, CPV forces crossed the Yalu River to aid the DPRK's fight there until a truce was signed in 1953. A total of 2.9 million CPV soldiers entered the battlefield, and 197,653 of them sacrificed their lives in the war. Enditem
