Of all the various titles Clickboogie was selling at this years miptv A Farm For Africa created a lot of interest. As there was such a good response to this particular title from my documentary buyers I'm looking for other 1 hour docs to package with it. If you have any docs that you think may work and are of international standard, I'll take a look and send them off. I deal with with global tv buyers everyday for more info on me check out www.clickboogie.com
A Farm For Africa is the extraordinary story of how, against all the odds, a handful of white Zimbabwean farmers made a new life in Nigeria.
Violently evicted from their own farms by Robert Mugabe’s 2003 land reforms, the future for Zimbabwe's white farmers was bleak. However, unbeknown to them their plight was being monitored by another African politician. Five thousand miles away in West Africa, Nigerian State Governor Bukola Saraki was planning his own agricultural revolution. Governor Saraki dreamed of reigniting commercial agriculture in Nigeria and providing long term economic development for the people of Kwara State and across Nigeria. His first step was to offer land and seed capital to the White Africans to come and start again on the banks of the Niger by creating modern commercial farms from virgin bush. From scratch, and battling against bureaucracy, disease, non-existant infrastructure and a sceptical local population somehow they had to make it work....Produced by Mike Read TV (Ch4, BBC, ITV, Ch5)
