Ep. 40: The Secret Museum of China
An absurd, deeply flawed notion left close to 600 million sparrows dead in China in the late 1950's. But it was only amongst the many missteps which came to define the People's Republic of China. In the new series - China Unseen, join Utsav as he draws upon his experiences of living in the country, and uncovers everyday life in the Middle Kingdom. An intimate look at contemporary China from within, and how the country came to become what it is today. This week, Utsav takes you to a secret museum right in the heart of Shanghai, which chronicles an exceptional time in modern China.
