Wednesday 18 July is an important date on the 2018 calendar. On the timeline of world history, it marks a hundred years since the birth of one of Africa’s most beloved icons, legendary statesman and Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela.
On that day, DStv will launch a special five-day long pop-up channel to celebrate and honour the extraordinary life and legacy of Tata Madiba. DStv’s Mandela 100 Tribute Channel will be available to all DStv customers across Africa on channel 199.
Starting on Madiba’s birthday, Wednesday 18 July, at 19:00, the channel will feature an exceptional mix of films, documentaries, archive footage from M-Net’s multiple award-winning actuality programme Carte Blanche as well as exclusive celebrity interviews.
