    • Synopsis
    • To some he was known as ‘The Black Pimpernel’ or ‘terrorist’. For years he was ‘Prisoner 46664’, and latterly, ‘President’ of a liberated nation. To some he’s known as ‘The Father of Africa’ and all free countries, and to twenty three people he’s just ‘Grandfather’.

      This is the true story of the greatest political figure of the 20th Century - Nelson Mandela - revealed in his own words, with his beloved family by his side. Exclusively featuring Mr Mandela’s last ever recorded interviews; it is a revealing portrait of an iconic man who is humble, reflective, warm and open.

      Mr Mandela’s story is told using his last to-camera interviews, uniquely featuring questions posed by his own family, archive footage, and breakthrough documentary techniques. Even in his final days, his thoughts on the growth of his beloved South Africa, political life and the development of the anti apartheid movement remain captivating. Time may temper his frame, but it hasn’t drowned the strength of his voice.
