Named after Latin Quarter's most popular song, Radio Africa compiles tracks from the group's three '80s albums – Modern Times, Mick and Caroline, and Swimming Against the Stream – none of which had yet appeared on CD when this collection was released in 1997. Latin Quarter's heavily political lyrics may not be understood by some, especially when the band's references are too obscure or forgotten in the passage of time.

Africa's development is being held back by poor infrastructure and undersized power plants. Countries like Uganda can only produce only 1/4 of the energy needed, leading to daily power cuts with disastrous economic impacts. It's a golden opportunity for nuclear giants who lobby aggressively for more power plants in Africa. But how safe are these new reactors? And what do they mean for the locals?

"Guardo le ruote e penso ai milioni e milioni di giri fatti, e ripenso all'Africa, a sedicimila chilometri di piste e strade d'Africa. Cinquanta giorni d'Africa, cronometro alla mano notte e giorno tutta l'Africa da nord a sud, Africa a cronometro." Così Egisto Corradi conclude il reportage del primo Rallye Algeri - Città del Capo, a cui partecipò nella duplice veste di giornalista e corridore. Un reportage, un libro di viaggio appassionante che prende spunto da una corsa automobilistica senza precedenti: fra il 26 dicembre 1950 e il 23 febbraio 1951 trentacinque equipaggi di sette paesi percorsero più di quindicimila chilometri di strade e piste attraversando l'Africa da nord a sud…

The Roof of Africa is home to the last of the world’s Ethiopian Wolves. Inhabiting a spectacular landscape 4.000 meters above see level, life for this highly endangered species is anything but ordinary. This film tells the dramatic story of Megeti, a lone wolf who wanders across the highlands on a quest to find a new home after loosing her pack and suddenly being left to fend for herself. Combining a unique and intimate predator portrait, as well as widely unknown landscapes and high-end photography, this is a memorable film experience about an Africa rarely seen on TV.
