Most South Africans will remember Nelson Mandela with a smile. They fondly call him by his clan name "Madiba". More than any other figure, he shaped the history of the new South Africa. In 1994, after spending almost three decades in prison, he became the first elected black president.
Deutsche Welle looks back at one of the world's most cherished leaders and bids Nelson Mandela farewell in a special 43-minute edition of our "In Focus" documentary series.
Please note that this program is not the usual half-hour format.
