To mark the passing of world peace figure Nelson Mandela, PBS Hawaii will air FRONTLINE'S definitive biography, The Long Walk of Nelson Mandela, first broadcast in 1999.
Watch for this powerful two-hour film, on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, at 4:30 pm. FRONTLINE has updated this thoughtful, important work that is the hallmark of public television. (PBS NEWSHOUR follows the special presentation.)
David Fanning, Executive Producer of the FRONTLINE series, says that his team had access to Mandela's closest colleagues, many of whom were with him in prison and at his side during the long struggle to end apartheid. Some have since passed away. Mandela is one of the great historical figures of the last century.
