China and ‘The Battle for Africa’

A China in Africa Podcast

Al Jazeera stands alone among the major international news channels in its regular coverage of the Chinese in Africa. In the network’s latest documentary released in September 2014, veteran Sierra Leonean journalist Sorious Samura hosts “The Battle for Africa,” in which he examines the growing Chinese presence and the political response across the continent. The documentary’s producer and director, Clive Patterson, joins us to discuss the making of this compelling two-part television series.
