This was an interesting documentary (video): Deng Xiaoping - The Making of a Leader

I had added that documentary to my watch list because of the following answer from Lee Kuan Yew, when asked about what leaders he admired:
De Gaulle, because he had tremendous guts; Deng, because he changed China from a broken-backed state, which would have imploded like the Soviet Union, into what it is today; and Churchill, because any other person would have given up.
If you find that documentary interesting, Evan Osnos' piece on Xi Jinping may also be of interest if you haven't read it yet: Born Red. A couple of Charlie Rose interviews, with Osnos and Kevin Rudd, may be of interest as well.
