Dan Snow's History of Congo

Dan Snow travels to Congo - one of the wildest, most colourful and anarchic places on our planet - to reveal how its troubled history of slavery, colonialism, corruption and war have turned one of the world's potentially richest countries into one of its poorest.

Dan's journey takes him to some of the most remote and dangerous places on earth, where he discovers how Congo's resources and people helped make Britain rich through the centuries and win two world wars.
