Mother Of All Propaganda TV Series Coming Soon
View Larger Map
Times Online: North Korea is producing an epic propaganda series about the life and achievements of its supreme leader, Kim Jong Il, adding to speculation that he is nearing the end of his life.
The documentary, news of which was reported today in North Korea’s media, will tell the official story of Mr Kim’s life from his supposed birth on the slopes of Paektu, Korea’s sacred mountain, to his succession to the leadership.
It comes after television showed images of Mr Kim looking haggard and emaciated after suffering serious illness, apparently a stroke, last summer. On Monday, an unconfirmed and anonymously sourced report on South Korean television suggested that he was suffering from pancreatic cancer and had only a short time to live.
