Abstract:

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. The programme is currently shown at the end of the official tour of the Castle.
