China: Triumph and Turmoil

Available on BBC Select, Prime Video
How does something stay together when the laws of history tell us it should fall apart? The country’s new billionaires, survivors of Chairman Mao’s regime and young nationalists talk to Professor Niall Ferguson about living in a Communist system with a capitalist economy. It’s held a fifth of humanity together for 2,000 years – will it last another 2,000?
