Journalist and cultural critic Afua Hirsch, exploring modern Africa through its culture and history, begins her illuminating three-part journey across the continent in the east, where Ethiopian culture is still inspired by its late king, Haile Selassie. In the rest of the series she moves onto the art and music of Senegal and Kenya. Also worth catching is Handmade in Africa (7.00pm), exploring the artistic process behind a variety of African crafts.
