Leaders Uncut

Uses historic interviews done with ANC and democratic movement leaders in the eighties and early nineties. The idea again was to cut as little as possible and to look for sections of key interviews that tell a story in the most direct way. The first episodes of this series feature Nelson Mandela, Chris Hani, Govan Mbeki, Walter Sisulu and Ahmed Kathrada, and unionists Jay Naidoo and Emma Mashinini.
