Daniel Tulloch / The Land of the People who Speak

The series ‘the land of the people who speak’ was produced in December 2013, around the time Nelson Mandela sadly passed away. It is a story of identity and a comparative study of the daily rhythm of Lesotho in relation to South Africa. An enclave and landlocked country, the Kingdom of Lesotho, once a British Protectorate (1884–1966), only gained full independence on 4th October 1966. The Sotho ethnic group comprises almost one hundred percent of the population and from a sociological viewpoint, Lesotho could be regarded a homogenous nation, both in terms of the ethnicity of the population, religion, and culture. However, strong cultural identity does not translate into a strong national identity, since its location deep in the heart of South Africa has historically forced the small state into dependence on its much larger neighbor.
