Once upon a time in a university in Burma

A friend recommended me this YouTube clip of Prof. Kyaw Thet's excerpt from CBS Edward Murrow's "See It Now" program on "Burma, Buddhism, and Neutrality" and I would like to share it with you again. This short clip tells us so much.

The first line began as follows:

"... Burma was the third nation in the history of the British empire to win its independence. The first two being the American colonies and the Republic of Iraq ... "

Thanks to lynaung who posted it on YouTube.
