Summary
This program spotlights the eastern African countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania. In Aksum and Addis Ababa, Jonathan Dimbleby learns about initiatives to improve farming across Ethiopia; follows a pilgrimage to Aksum's Church of St. Mary of Zion; observes the Eid al-Adha festival in Addis Ababa; attends a session of a coffee-growers' commodity exchange; and visits some fair trade businesses. In Nairobi and Makutano, he sees firsthand how the cell phone revolution is transforming Kenya; considers the positive social significance of the soap opera Makutano Junction; and explains how new highways are enhancing economic growth. And in Arusha and Dar es Salaam, he takes part in Tanzanian independence day festivities and applauds the nation's freedom of speech, a vital force for democracy
