  • Escape from Pretoria is based on the true story of Tim Jenkin (Daniel Radcliffe) and Stephen Lee (Daniel Webber). The young, white South Africans worked covert operations for Nelson Mandela’s banned ANC. Incarcerated in Pretoria Central Prison’s maximum-security wing in 1978, they decide to send the apartheid regime a clear message and escape! With breathtaking ingenuity, meticulous surveillance, and wooden keys crafted for 10 steel doors, they make a bid for freedom... Beyond a thrilling will-they-won’t-they-escape, this is the story of an oppressed majority’s struggle and two ordinary men who stood up to be counted in the pursuit of equality for all. Tune in 4 July at 8PM CAT (7PM WAT/9PM EAT).
