Summary: On 25th June 1993, the white right wing gathered outside the World Trade Centre, where negotiations concerning the future of the country were in progress. Led by the AWB, they used a vehicle to break through the heavy glass doors and, walking past passive policemen, occupied part of the building. This programme documents the events of this historic day as seen through the eyes of three individuals: Rashni, a clerk at the negotiations, who was trapped inside with her co-workers; Leonard, a right wing farmer who took part in the occupation; and Patrick, a lawyer acting for a group of black farmers, who had come to the centre to present a memorandum arguing for a return of lands from which they had been dispossessed in 1963

Summary: This video on Cape Town's Castle describes the structure as one of colonial Africa's earliest monuments. Shot on location and using material from the William Fehr Collection, which is housed there, it presents a brief overview of its changing role in the history of South Africa, though usually as a symbol of power and authority. It discusses the building's evolvement from earthern fort to governor's residence and describes life within its walls. It also refers to the Cape's earlier inhabitants, the Bushmen and the Khoi Khoi, and the clash of cultures that resulted in the domination of first the Dutch and then the British.
