SABC brings you the South African 2011 Local Government Elections live and clear /* */


South Africa has a rich and colourful past. From its earliest colonisation by European nations, to the struggle to break free from this history, to the icons that fought to bring democracy to its people. All of this provided a rich background for the creation of stories that are just waiting to be told. The SABC, with its award-winning documentaries, have done just that. We tell, in a truly entertaining way, the stories that are just begging to reach a wider audience. Below we have listed some of the doccies that we believe an international market would have a keen interest in.
