With telling images and evocative music, this programme recalls the key events in the African continent from 1960 to the present day. The wind of change heralded by Harold MacMillan beckoned an era of optimism and hope for newly independent African nations. In the succeeding years the horror of war and famine, the struggle against apartheid, the search for democracy and Mandela's triumph are all part of the story. The fusion of old and new musical traditions and the emergence of African music on the world stage is charted by musicians including Angelique Kidjo, Youssou N'Dour, Salif Keita and Hugh Masekela.
