Tuesday's Documentary A return visit by Hugh Burnett
People of British descent in South Africa form one of the biggest English-speaking minorities in the world. As the tide of Britain's imperial power receded, they were left high and dry. They are, as one of them puts it, both comfortable and bewildered. They once ruled the roost and don'quite know how they lost it. But they are an intensely patriotic group and do not like criticism of South Africa.
There are one and a half million of them - outnumbered nearly two to one by the white Afrikaners and 14 to one by the rest of the population.
Tonight's film highlights some of their extremes of attitudes, their mixed feelings and some unusual forms of their British way of life.
