Summary
This major eight-part series reveals the rich and diverse drama of African history and is presented by the distinguished historian and scholar Basil Davidson. Covering a vast time scale - from the origins of some of the world's greatest civilisations, to colonisation, the rise of nationalism and the emergence of modern Africa - the story is unfolded on location all over the continent with the help of archive film, carefully illustrated eye-witness accounts, interviews with statesmen and leaders, dramatic reconstructions and specially-shot film of festivals, ceremonies and life there today. This episode talks about the history of Kano, a city in Nigeria and the ancient city called Benin
