The Daqing oilfield, in the cold north-east of China, becomes the national example for industrial development. Workers obtain a high production, inspired by Mao Zedong's thoughts (see the book in the coat pocket). "Iron Man" Wang Jinxi, the drill operator pictured here, becomes a model in his own right.
