EDSA Revolution History Relived in "Matanglawin"

EDSA Revolution and its historical significance in the country this Sunday on “Matanglawin.”

Kuya Kim and fellow “It’s Showtime” host Teddy Corpuz literally and figuratively walk down memory lane, tie a yellow ribbon, and get to know the history of the road named after a certain Don Panyong as they commemorate the anniversary of the EDSA revolution this Sunday (February 26) in “Matanglawin.”

Get to know who Epifanio delos Santos is and why the historic road was named after him. Before EDSA came to be, did you know that this stretch of 24 kilometers was known as the North and South Circumferential Road and Highway 54?

It was even pegged to be named after American General Douglas MacArthur, national hero Jose Rizal, former Philippine President Ramon Magsaysay and in 2009, former President Cory Aquino for her role in the momentous bloodless revolution of 1986.

Kuya Kim and Teddy also visit famous landmarks about the 1986 Revolution to know what happened during the Martial Law and why yellow was the most popular color in town.

Recently, “Matanglawin” was recognized as the Best Educational Program in the 8th USTv Students’ Choice Awards given by the University of Santo Tomas.

Don’t miss “Matanglawin” this Sunday (February 26), 9:30 a.m. on ABS-CBN.
