Program Description

In this second program Channel 2 producer Henry Morgenthau shows how whites in South Africa hide behind their unique culture and the separation of the races, a separation that inflames the blacks to violence. Author Alan Paton sums up: “I don’t believe that there’s any such thing as a absolute sovereignty, and I’m sure that there’ll be no peace for the human race either if nationalism goes mad.”

Program probed the political and social situation in South Africa. (Filmed in secrecy, had to be smuggled out of South Africa. Specially trained African photographer mailed exposed film to US as "zulu beads.")

See June 1965 Program Guide for story.
