Dimension Data sponsors Mandela documentary on DStv

ICT solutions provider Dimension Data is sponsoring the latest Nelson Mandela documentary, titled ‘Miracle Rising’, currently showing on the History channel via South African satellite network DStv until February 25.

“MultiChoice is honoured to be involved in bringing Miracle Rising: South Africa to fruition with History and Dimension Data,” Imtiaz Patel, Group Chief Executive at MultiChoice South Africa, told ScreenAfrica.

“This is a landmark project which tells the story of the birth of our South African democracy in a refreshing and remarkable way. If we look at how democracy is playing out in the world around us, this story is one that should be heard by all.

“As a proudly South African company, it is fitting that our DStv platform will be the first in the world to broadcast this story on History. We are pleased that through History, more than 300 million homes around the world will also get access to this story,” Patel added.

Produced by Combined Artists, the documentary, marking the 23rd anniversary of the prison release of the former South African President and icon, features “untold stories” from the period 1990 to 1994.

The more personal tales and opinions from a diverse selection of politicians, celebrities, journalists and world leaders offer the viewer perspective on the different threads between the dream and the actualisation of achieving democracy.

Miracle Rising will be screened worldwide in 150 countries and 37 languages to 300 million homes through DStv.

Miracle Rising: South Africa, a documentary that marks the 23rd anniversary of Madiba’s release from prison and recounts untold stories of the four years from the release of Mandela in 1990 to the elections in 1994 is screening on History on DStv until 25 February 2013.
