1911 Revolution is a Chinese television series based on the events of the Xinhai Revolution, which brought an end to imperial rule in China in 1911. It was first broadcast on CCTV-1 during prime time on 27 September 2011. It was specially produced to mark the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution.


The series follows a chronology of the major events that happened throughout the life of Sun Yat-sen. It includes, among other events, the formation of the Tongmenghui, the Wuchang Uprising, the fall of the Qing dynasty, the establishment of the Republic of China, Yuan Shikai's rise and fall from power, and the National Protection War.



The Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China marketed 1911 Revolution as an important tribute to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution. Produced by Tianjin Television and the Publicity Department of the CPC Tianjin Municipal Committee, the series started its planning work in 2008 and completed its preparations by the second half of 2009. A press conference was held on 24 October 2010 at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing to announce the series. Shooting began on the following day in Tianjin[1] and wrapped up on 15 March 2011. Li Wei, the director for the series, mentioned that the plot would be as historically accurate as possible, and that there is historical evidence to support how the historical figures (over 200 of them) in the series are portrayed.[2]
