A People's History Of The Portugese Revolution
Friday 29 Mar 6.30

On the 25 April 1974, a coup overthrew Estado Novo's dictatorship in Portugal. People flooded the streets of Lisbon, placing red carnations in the barrels of guns in what became know as The Carnation Revolution - the uprising of Portugal's long opressed working classes.
The shockwave went round the world triggering revolts in Portugal's African colonies.

Raquel Varala explores the role of trade unionists, artists and women in the revolution, providing a rich account of the challenges and the victories.

With editor Peter Robinson.
