Commemorating the 110th anniversary of Deng Xiaoping's birth, a TV series which tells the story of the historic transformation of China under the guidance of Deng in the late 1970s will be shown on China Central Television (CCTV) on Friday at prime time.

Made by CCTV, supported by the CCCPC Party Literature Research Office and the Party committee of Sichuan province, the 48-episode TV series took nearly four years to complete. During that time, staff members from the three units as well as Deng's family members helped portray the life of the late, great Chinese leader.

The story starts in 1978, the historical turning point of China.
