African Love Affair: Margaret and Kathleen

Duration: 02:48 minutes

Margaret is haunted by her decision to put Africa before Ted, the love of her life. They met at University and it was Margaret's determination to do Voluntary Service Overseas that led to her making a decision that changed both of their lives for ever. Twenty nine years later Margaret movingly talks to her friend Kathleen about her heartbreak, and the gap in her life she has never filled.
