This is indeed a major coup for SABC 3. The ratings embattled SABC channel will be broadcasting LIVE, the red carpet of the South African premiere of the Anant Singh movie, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. From 5pm to 6pm, viewers can tune into the channel and catch Expresso presenters, Katlego Maboe and Elana Afrika interview the stars of the film and invited guests. Idrid Elba, who stars as Nelson Mandela is in the country for the premiere, as is Naomie Harris, who stars as Winnie Mandela. Terry Pheto, Riaad Moosa and Atandwa Kani are also some of the co-stars expected at the premiere.
Katlego and Elana are great on Expresso and we hope that they don't disappoint on Sunday. We hope that this will be a testing ground for the SAFTAs and the Royalty Soapie Awards.
Programming Note: Due to this special broadcast, Top Gear USA will not be broadcast this week, but will return to SABC3 television screens next week.
