Africa is the most culturally and ethnically diverse continent on the planet. But the peoples of Africa are widely regarded as victims of hunger, disease, poverty and conflict and the vast continent in which they live as one unmitigated disaster.

To view Africa exclusively through that narrow prism is to short-change the truth and to miss the point. In this series, Jonathan Dimbleby reveals Africa as it is: vibrant with energy, imagination, innovation, and populated by a wide range of individuals and communities who face great challenges but approach them with optimism and resolve.

Challenging a host of prevailing misconceptions and with the insight of one of the UK's most respected journalists, An African Journey paints the continent in an entirely new and refreshing light.
