Noo Saro-Wiwa's travels in Nigeria: Looking for Transwonderland

22 December 2011 Last updated at 16:06 GMT

For many years, filmmaker and travel guide writer Noo Saro-Wiwa did not return to Nigeria.

She found it too painful to go back to the country where her father - writer and community leader Ken Saro-Wiwa - was executed by a military government in 1995.

She finally made the journey and has just published a book about it, Looking for Transwonderland: Travels in Nigeria.

Ms Saro-Wiwa recently visited BBC Africa's studios in London and told our presenter Bola Mosuro what made her change her mind and what she discovered during her trip.
