Part 13 of the PBS Peoples Century series, Freedom Now: Colonial Rule Is Overthrown in Asia and Africa, focuses on the anticolonial struggle in the second half of the twentieth century. After the Second World War, much of the world lived still under the colonial rule by imperial powers such as Britain, Belgium, France and Portugal, who all still had considerable holdings abroad. But starting in the 1930s, European control in Asia and Africa was more and more challenged. The struggle for independence took on added intensity after 1945 and Indochina with the First and Second Indochina War (1946–75) was one main region of this struggle for independence.
