The BBC Synopsis of this program:

2/2. In the last part of the series, Jihan El Tahri tells the story of Cuba's interventions in Africa from the 1960s onwards, and the US's response. From Che's campaign in the Congo to the battle of Cuito Cuanavale in Angola, the programme shows how Cuba tried to carve out an alternative path for Third World nations and how the effects of this battle for resources and strategic positions are still felt today.

The programme contains unique archive stills and footage of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, and features interviews and testimony from the men who fought with them.
