One Week Later…

A week later, and the team here in the US is still hard at work. I have been busy researching archival footage for Africa and the World, and there is a lot of interesting material for everyone to look forward to. Throughout my time working on Africa and the World, I have been doing research on various people and events that the film deals with. This is the first time, however, that I have had the opportunity to watch footage of these events. My favorite segment to research is the “wind of change” speech by Harold Macmillan. According to BBC, “The ‘wind of change’ speech is a historical landmark. Macmillan was aware of the speech’s significance and was so nervous that he was violently sick before he delivered it.” Check out a recording of the speech at http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/apartheid/7203.shtml. Clearly, Macmillan’s nerves did not come through in his speech. Enjoy!
