Sudan was the giant of Africa which once represented the greatest hope for peaceful coexistence between Arab and African, Muslim and Christian. That hope is all but gone.

Sudan: History of a broken land goes straight to the heart of the problem, confronting key characters in Sudan's modern history and also hearing the tragic stories of ordinary men and women.

This powerful film provides an excellent grounding to understand a country fashioned by British colonial power and later traumatised by civil war. It sets out to discover the truth behind the tragedy that was – and perhaps still is - Sudan.

 
Sudan: History of a broken land can be seen from Thursday, June 23, at the following times GMT: Thursday: 2000; Friday: 1200; Saturday: 0100; Sunday: 0600; Monday: 2000; Tuesday: 1200; Wednesday: 0100; Thursday: 0600.
