In 1958, China's revered leader Mao Zedong instituted a programme designed to transform his giant nation into a Communist utopia. The resulting three-year famine claimed the lives of more than 45 million Chinese. In this oral history of modern China's greatest tragedy, survivors of the cataclysm share their memories of the devastation and loss.
