<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
Absorbing documentary drama on the life of Bishop James Walsh, who, when this episode debuted, was serving a 20-year term in a Red Chinese prison for "espionage." The drama reviews the life of the Maryknoll missionary from 1918 when he first went to serve the Chinese to 1960 when he was arrested. It shows the many adversities in his life, but particularly those beginning in 1949 when Communism took over China. He resisted in a solitary battle for the sake of his Chinese "children." The leading role was played by James Daly.
