'Madiba' musical brings Nelson Mandela’s journey to the stage

Nelson Mandela's "long walk to freedom" has now been translated into musical theatre. French production "Madiba" revisits the apartheid era through music and drama. Actor Jean-Louis Garçon tells us about the challenges of playing one of the 20th century's iconic figures. This new show has had the all-important green light from the late leader's family: Ndaba Mandela, Nelson Mandela's grandson, shares his memories of Madiba and tells us how his grandfather's legacy lives on in South Africa.
