Season 17: Episode 16

In the most in-depth film biography of Mandela ever undertaken, FRONTLINE tells the story of his life through interviews with intimates — from his most trusted associates to his jailers on Robben Island, the prison where he was held for 27 years. The two-hour film offers an insider’s account of his extraordinary will to lead and of the great risk and personal sacrifice he endured to achieve democracy and equality for the people of his nation.
