  1. Great documentary. Thanks to the producers. Tribute to all the freedom fighters for the resistance they put up against opression from the self-imposed rulers of the universe.

  2. And you think you have heard it all before!

  4. A brilliant revisit to a period of great bravery and sacrifice by the selfless men, women and families that ‘attended to the birth of Zambia’.
    A well-researched/produced/presented piece of history that adds to the foundation and identity of Zambia.
    Well-done Zamtel and Loyola Production.
