In conjunction with SG50, MediaCorp releases Lee Kuan Yew programmes on DVD

MediaCorp is making available on DVD, a collection of programmes about Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s founding Prime Minister, in conjunction with the celebration of Singapore’s 50th year of independence. These programmes were broadcast on MediaCorp’s free-to-air channels during the period of national mourning following his death on 23 March 2015. Since then, MediaCorp has received requests from members of the public to offer the programmes on DVD for purchase.

Forging a Nation and In His Own Words are being released in the week before Singapore celebrates its National Day on 9 August.

Forging a Nation is a compilation of 15 clips of about 5 minutes in duration. They illustrate the events that led to Singapore’s independence, the immediate challenges it faced as a fledgling nation and how it overcame the odds to become the nation it is today.

In His Own Words is a six-part series of excerpts from key speeches made by Mr Lee over the years, covering various themes close to his heart.

Both series are packaged in a special four-disc box set edition in four languages – English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil.
