Summary
This program concentrates on the central and southern African countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia, and South Africa. In Kinshasa and Lubumbashi, Jonathan Dimbleby meets a Congolese band whose polio-stricken members sing a message of hope; learns about China's deep investments in Africa's infrastructure and future successes; admires the Kimbangist Symphony Orchestra and Chorus; and marvels at how worn-out locomotives are repaired and kept in service. In and around Lusaka, he tours a Zambian-owned and -operated commercial farm and meets a world-champion female boxer and the inventor "Dr. Reason Why." And in Johannesburg and Durban, he rides with a biker group that spreads a message of empowerment to at-risk South African children; talks with jazz musician/activist Hugh Masekela; attends a modern singing competition in the Zulu tradition; and views Durban's container ship port - the busiest port in Africa
