Abstract:

This ground-breaking series focuses on African innovation, addressing today's and tomorrow's problems with courage and imagination in equal measure. It is a fascinating look at how cutting-edge scientific technology from all over the world is being put to use to alleviate the problems faced by Africans today. The thirteen part series tells stories from all over Africa, and introduces the people who are doing great things - from fighting the escalating gun crime in South Africa to unearthing and diffusing land mines in Mozambique; from astronomy to medicine; and from large scale engineering infrastructure to homegrown solutions to local problems - creating a sustainable future for individuals, families, communities and nations.
