Channel NewsAsia is launching a five-part documentary series on key incidents in Singapore's history
Called "Days of Rage", the series features previously unseen footage and interviews from historical events such as the Maria Hertogh riots and the Hock Lee bus riots.
More than 60 years after the Maria Hertogh riots, three of Hertogh's children have given insights into what Hertogh herself went through during those turbulent times.
Their journey to the places their mother once called home will be the highlight of the first episode of the documentary series.
"Days of Rage" covers five key incidents in Singapore's history in the 50s, 60s and 70s, and the production team behind it shot the series in five different countries over the course of one year.
Episode 1: Nadra
Episode 2: Hock Lee Bus Riots
12 May 1955 is also known as “Black Thursday” in Singapore’s history. What started as a peaceful strike escalated into a violent riot, in which four people were killed and 31 injured.
Episode 3: 1964 Race Riots
On 21 July 1964, race riots plunged Singapore into days of rage. They marked the beginning of the end for Singapore’s place in the new Federation of Malaysia – just 13 months later, the two nations would separate.
