A+E Networks UK adds the Sabido Productions documentary, Sharpeville Echoes, to the History channel in Africa for 2018's Human Rights' Day.

History (DStv 186) has added the documentary Sharpeville Echoes for broadcast on the channel on Tuesday 20 March at 18:30.

Produced a few years ago by Sabido Productions, A+E Networks UK that programmes the History channel, has scheduled Sharpeville Echoes for the night before 21 March that is Human Rights' Day in South Africa.

Sharpeville Echoes, produced in 2010, looks back at the Sharpeville Massacre of 21 March 1960 when at least 69 people were killed by South African police as protesters fled the Sharpeville Massacre.

Seven young photographers return to Sharpeville, in 2010 when it was 50 years after the Sharpeville Massacre - several of whom don't know anything about Sharpeville, and some who don't want to know.

Sharpeville Echoes also interviews the only photographer who witnessed the massacre, along with researchers and historians who have attempted to piece together this infamous point in apartheid era South Africa's history.
