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.
