Days Of Rage

About the show:

The darkest periods of Singapore’s history were when politics and race tore communities apart; when trade unions brought the economy to a standstill; where saboteurs were bent on making this country fail; and terrorism reared its ugly head. The days of rage were dark days then, but they also helped to strengthen the country’s core beliefs, and make it the nation it is today. This series brings to the fore events and challenges in Singapore’s history and the lessons learnt.
