Seoul: North Korea says it has produced the second part of a multipart documentary chronicling the life of leader Kim Jong Il.
The official Korean Central News Agency said in a dispatch today that the second part of the film, dubbed ‘Glorifying the Revolutionary Traditions’, focuses on Kim`s efforts to preserve historic and "revolutionary" sites in the country starting in the 1950s.

It said the film`s first part is about the 67-year-old Kim`s birth, childhood and school days.

The retrospective would be a rare acknowledgment that Kim, believed to have suffered a stroke last year, is getting on in years. The film is reminiscent of a 20-part documentary made the year before Kim`s father died of heart failure in
1994.
