Black History Month: Mandela > Aired 22 Feb 2006

Mandela: An Audio History is narrated by Desmond Tutu and is the story of South Africa's struggle against apartheid, told in the words of Nelson Mandela, as well as those who fought with him - and against him. Mandela: An Audio History is a groundbreaking project that weaves together an unprecedented collection of archival sound materials documenting and preserving the story of Nelson Mandela and the struggle against apartheid. Hear a rare recording of the 1964 trial that resulted in Mandela's life sentence; a visit between Mandela and his wife, Winnie, secretly recorded by a prison guard; marching songs of guerilla soldiers; government propaganda films; and pirate radio broadcasts from the African National Conference (ANC).

Mandela: An Audio History was produced by Radio Diaries.
