Malaya: Rumbles In The Jungle
44m

In June of 1948 a state of emergency was declared in Malaya after a communist insurgency brutally murdered three rubber planters. For over a decade a guerrilla war was fought against the British Empire, in the pursuit of independence and communist control. The conflict would eventually lead to independence and the birth of a new country, Malaysia. But the bloodshed and murder in the lead up has been forgotten by many - Tony Robinson reawakens the stories of the people who fought in the unforgiving jungles of Malaya.
