Miracle Rising South Africa for The History Channel
History Channel commissioned the production of a documentary film recounting the story of South Africa’s road to democracy. Their extant and suggested format could not translate to South African realities. As co-producers of the documentary, Brandwealth’s Thys Botha and Michele Sparkes reworked the programme concept from a one to two-hour feature which was broadcast to over 350 million households worldwide. The documentary featured key players in the south African political landscape and a stellar cast of some 30-plus ‘celebrity’ contributors who shared their particular and personal stories about the evolution of South Africa’s democracy. Bono contributed a song. The talent list features global personalities such as President Bill & Hilary Clinton, Peter Gabriel, Oprah, Whoopi Goldberg. Charlize Theron, Desmond Tutu, Christian Amanpour, Archbishop Tutu, Afre Woodard, to name a few.
