Item notes : This is an edition of the magazine programme 'Africa abroad' presented by Frances Ademola, which looks at cultural activities in South Africa. The programme begins with a brief item about South African jazz presented by Amino Abdullahi [?], name transcribed phonetically from recording. Next Robert Serumaga interviews Neville Rubin, editor of The New African about the aims of the magazine within the context of the political situation in South Africa. Then Frances Ademola examines the use of English by non-English writers. 'A song for Jamaica' by Andrew Salkey is recited, followed by 'The year's first rain' by J P Clark read by Leonard Dixon. This is followed immediately and abruptly by an interview with J P Clark, which begins part way through.
