This special follows photographer and film director Harry Hook as he travels across Africa and documents various tribal groups. Hook, who grew up in Sudan and Kenya, has been examining Africa through the camera lens for 40 years. In this program he aims to chart not only the changes of the continent he loves, with its people increasingly embracing city life over remote communities, but also the evolutions of some of his subjects, including five Samburu women he first photographed in Kenya some 30 years ago.
