Nelson Mandela - Former President of South Africa
South Africans are coming to terms with the death of Nelson Mandela, the country's first black president, the father of the rainbow nation and a figure of towering moral authority. His extraordinary life is being remembered and celebrated by them and by people all around the world. More than ten years ago, George Alagiah interviewed President Mandela for a special edition of HARDtalk when he was in Britain for the Commonwealth Conference. They talked about his life, his love and his earliest days in South Africa's liberation struggle.
