Who is Nelson Mandela?



Another BBC programme on Africa.  This time as we count down to the World Cup in the “Rainbow Nation” South Africa, the BBC has a programme about how Mandela brought peace to South Africa after Apartheid.

According to the BBC’s blurb: “Lenora Crichlow sets off to discover the amazing story of how Mandela brought peace to his country and what he means to people there today. In a journey packed with emotion for Lenora, she uncovers a far more complex and fascinating picture of Mandela and his country than she ever imagined. Lenora discovers a vibrant Rainbow Nation, but also learns more about the horrors of apartheid and the extent of poverty and violence in the country today. On her journey she unlocks the secrets of who Mandela really is, and why his achievements in life are so special and so admired.”
