  • Presents a condensed version of the People's Republic of China film, Red Flag Canal, with English narration by Jack Chen. It vividly depicts the construction of a mammoth canal in Honon Province which brings water and new life to this formerly barren and poverty-stricken area. The building of this 940+ mile canal has become one of the epic stories of contemporary China and is a model for the rest of China in its exemplification of the values of self-reliance, self-sacrifice and perserverance.
