What happens if your native country is torn apart by civil war, and you are living far away, only imagining what has happened to the people you love, the buildings you know and the lush beautiful landscape you remember? After 30 years' absence, novelist Delia Jarrett-Macauley finally goes back to Sierra Leone to see what has become of a country finally at peace, but struggling to survive. The Programme interweaves her memories and her fiction with the real struggle to rebuild the place known as Salone". Producer Sara Jane Hall
