PBS on "The Tank Man"

On June 5, 1989, one day after the Chinese army’s deadly crushing of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing, a single, unarmed young man stood his ground before a column of tanks on the Avenue of Eternal Peace. Captured on film and video by Western journalists, this extraordinary confrontation became an icon of the struggle for freedom around the world.

In one of the sections, four students at one of China’s most prestigious universities fail to identify where the famous Tianamen Square photo of the “Tank Man” is from.
