SOUTH AFRICA'S JOURNEY TO DEMOCRACY IS REMEMBERED THROUGH THE COMPELLING SPECIAL PRESENTATION...

"MIRACLE RISING: SOUTH AFRICA"

Premiering Sunday, February 17 at 10pm ET on H2

New York, NY - MIRACLE RISING: SOUTH AFRICA tells the remarkable story of South Africa's political transformation that culminated in the first free and fair elections in April 1994. Narrated through personal and intimate accounts from world leaders, politicians, celebrities and journalists, this thought-provoking documentary reflects on South Africa's very own 'Miracle' - the inspiring story of a journey from apartheid to democracy.

H2 will premiere MIRACLE RISING: SOUTH AFRICA on Sunday, February at 10pm ET, and the special will then repeat on HISTORY on Saturday, February 23 at 12pm ET.

MIRACLE RISING: SOUTH AFRICA is a moving testament to the choices of people, both ordinary and iconic, where the human capacity to find compassion enabled a nation to avoid civil war and reach forgiveness for the greater good. Set against the backdrop of the majestic African landscape, the special reveals the crucial decisions and small conversations, the tragic ironies and audacious leaps of faith that combined to make the impossible vision and a democratic election a reality.

From Nelson Mandela's decision to learn Afrikaans while in prison, to the amnesty hearings of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission, the special explores the difficult decisions that were taken enabling enemies to achieve peace. MIRACLE RISING: SOUTH AFRICA moves beyond mere chronology, into the hearts and minds of the leaders and people of South Africa, culminating in the electrifying behind-the-scenes events of the elections.

Offering valuable lessons in peace-making, MIRACLE RISING: SOUTH AFRICA focuses on the visionary leadership and negotiations that brought about transition of the nationalist regime to a system of one-person, one-vote. Told through simple, intimate portraits of key players, it weaves an epic story of a nation into an intimate history of men and women determined to change the country for the best for all who live there.
