Destination Timbuktu

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

Crossing the Senegal river to the old French colonial capital of St Louis, Michael leaves the desert behind and savors the delights of cosmopolitan Sub-Saharan Africa. He meets up with Senegal's Queen of Soap, Marie-Madeleine Yakouba. Over lunch, the topic of polygamy comes up and it is one that will resonate throughout the thousand-mile trip to Timbuktu. Marie-Madeleine will have none of it, a view shared by schoolmistress, Dhadi Ba, with whom Michael shares a carriage on the train to Bamako.
