  • 新加坡的历史剧情简介
      Disc 1: Episode 1 - Raffles' Little Child The first episode chronicles the arrival of Sir Stamford Raffles, and tells the story of Singapore's birth and growing pains through to the high noon of Empire. With a vision of Singapore as a trading port in its own right, Raffles attempted to shift the centre of the trading network to Singapore with the promise of free trade. But money-making schemes, monopoly of the opium and alcohol supplies, secret societies and other vices plagued the tiny nation, and the city grew more squalid and violent as there was no government to speak of. However, with the opening of the Suez Canal, Singapore became a truly international port, no longer having to rely on regional trade. Disc 2: Episode 2 - Accidental Nation Nationalism arrived in Singapore in 1901 with Sun Yat Sen. Japan's invasion of China in the 1930s further fueled this, triggering a nationalist outpouring. Japan soon attacked the small island and Britain surrendered Singapore in February 1942. After the war, it was clear that the British no longer had the funds for the Empire and it was time for Singaporeans to fill the political vacuum. A new professional class of people like Lee Kuan Yew became the first Singaporean nationalists. Disc 3: Episode 3 - Lion City, Asian Tiger Singapore's journey did not have a promising start, and few believed it could survive as an independent nation state. After its separation from Malaya, Singapore had lost its industrial and emotional hinterland, was surrounded by potentially hostile neighbours, and was beleaguered by political unrest. This episode shows how Singapore turned yet another weakness into strength under the leadership of Lee Kuan Yew, political opponents were neutralized, trade union activism was discouraged and the nation was re-educated with a series of public campaigns. With the influx of multi-national corporations, Singapore's programme of state capitalism flourished.

    几年前在PPS看的,今天发现有下载,碰巧最近在读李光耀的回忆录。全力推荐,新加坡这样历史不长的国家最大的好处是脉络不复杂。

    是一部很好了解新加坡国家的纪录片,政治上与中国有一定的相似性,经济上中国可以向坡学习的地方很多。

    第一集充分展现那个时代的历史变迁,所谓的兴衰都是综合各种因素的结果~第二集比较莫名其妙,独立若是不得已而为之,为何还有争取独立一说?感觉这段历史很多没讲透~第三集展现传统华人观念与西方自由之都的融合,的确生长出政治独裁但经济文化自由的国度~也许只要生活好华人是不管谁当皇帝的
