    Mass arrests. Newspaper raids. Banned protests. Activists fleeing into exile. A curriculum designed to brainwash. The Telegraph’s award-winning China Correspondent Sophia Yan tells the inside story of how life in Hong Kong was turned upside down in just one year.

    In this second episode, a sweeping new law changes everything overnight, leaving Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protest movement exposed and vulnerable – but unwilling to give up the fight. As the noose tightens, some are arrested, while others choose to flee into exile.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
