Episode Details

South Africa: This Land is My Land, depicts the complex situation that arose after the country's first democratically elected government, headed by President Nelson Mandela, came to power in 1994.

Kenya: Medical Geography, examines medical geography and the delivery of healthcare in a developing country. The central question is whether it is possible to improve the situation for people in Kenya, where conditions seem to be more favorable for the development of disease than for the survival of human beings. In addition to facing traditional killers like malaria and trachoma, this region is now in the grips of the terrible pandemic of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
