SHANGHAI, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- A television program to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC) was launched on Friday at the site of the first CPC National Congress in Shanghai.

The 12-episode program was organized by the National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA), and jointly created by the Institute of Party History and Literature of the CPC Central Committee, the National Archives Administration, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and other institutions.

Featuring lesser-known events, documents and relics about the CPC, the program will "reflect the great spirit of the Party over its 100-year history" by telling stories and displaying specific figures and events, according to the launching ceremony of the program.
