African School is the best television I have seen this year. This series alone has justified our BBC licence fee for 2005.
Each chapter has been compelling television - a wealth of individual stories and broader issues that have weave together to transport us from the living room to Masindi, Uganda.
The series shines light on all that is good about the human condition - hope, ingenuity, humour and a fearless desire to face up to the difficult challenges and take advantages of any opportunity. All of this is has been done while delivering gripping television
This is a series, like Trauma last year, that must be given a better billing. Let's see a re-run on BBC1 at 7 or 8 o'clock, it is what the BBC is all about and on a purely selfish note I would like friends and family to enjoy the programme too!
