This is a 45-minute documentary produced by Ten Worlds Productions for "The History Channel" that originally aired on January 19, 2006.
The famed demonstrations in Beijing's Tiananmen Square started out as China's answer to Woodstock, but ended like Kent State.
Since much of the shooting took place outside of the Square, a count of deaths within the Square is not reflective of the scale of violence that took place.
In addition, the Army reportedly fired on students after they left the Square, especially in the area near the Beijing concert hall.
Edward Timperlake says that 4,000 to 6,000 civilians killed, but no one really knows.
A PLA (people's liberation army) defector says that over 3,700 killed, excluding disappearance or secret deaths and those denied medical treatment.
Time Magazine tells that 2,600 had officially died by the morning of 4 June 1989 (later denied).
An unnamed Chinese Red Cross official estimated that, in total, 5,000 people were killed and 30,000 injured.
The film features never-before-seen footages and confidential interviews with Chinese officials and then-student leaders.
It also uncovers the long-shrouded
story of the young Chinese students and labor activists who stood up in defiance of the Communist regime and bravely demonstrated their willingness
to pay the ultimate price for the right to democracy.
It is a heart-breaking, shocking and thought-provoking documentary.
