In February 1986, a revolutionary mass revolt in the Philippines led to the downfall of its corrupt and cruel dictator, Ferdinand Marcos. He and his family fled the country. Yet, 36 years later, the Philippines voted in the son of that very same dictator, namely Ferdinand Marcos Jr (also known as Bongbong). So, how did this happen? Dr Maria Atienza, a professor of political science in the Philippines joins us to discuss.
