28 Up South Africa

Documentary in the traditions of Michael Apted's 7 Up, following the lives of a group of children in South Africa and offering an insight into life in a country that has gone through momentous change. In 1992, when they turned seven, Nelson Mandela had only been out of prison for two years. By the time they were 14, he had become their president and the regime of apartheid had been consigned to history. Chosen from separate communities, the six characters have had starkly differing life experiences.
