With the structure of three chapters, the programme aims to send a meaningful message: The shape of Vietnam for thousands of years has always been built from the efforts, blood and bones of all patriotic Vietnamese.

The programme also shows the belief that the Vietnamese people’s intelligence, creativity and bravery through each historical period help the country to overcome difficulties, especially in the current context of fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.

Starting from the sacred space of historic Ba Dinh Square, where President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence announcing the birth of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam) 76 years ago, the show takes viewers to important historical milestones.

These moments include: June 5, 1911, when the young man known as Nguyen Tat Thanh left Nha Rong Harbor, starting a great journey to find a way to save the country; and January 28, 1941, when after three decades of operation in more than 30 countries and territories across four continents, he returned to his homeland, carrying the baggage of national salvation – the path of the proletarian revolution. After which, he directly led the Vietnamese Revolution to victory on September 2, 1945, the day that the Democratic Republic of Vietnam was born.

The programme’s production crew said that they have been implementing the programme since the beginning of 2021. Even in April and May, many delegations of reporters went to survey and research the contents regarding places associated with President Ho Chi Minh, such as Cao Bang, Binh Thuan, and Ho Chi Minh City. In particular, the production team recorded an exchange in Pac Bo, Cao Bang, with Hoang Thi Khin, 102 years old, a rare historical witness of the events 80 years ago.

In addition to reports, exchanges, and scenes, the programme also brings a poetic art space, imbued with love and pride for the homeland, with songs that are deeply imprinted in the hearts of millions of Vietnamese people.

In order to connect history with the present, the programme also spends a considerable amount of time conveying stories of volunteers, doctors, and soldiers on the front lines in the fight against the epidemic who risk their lives to protect the people.
