Afrikaners have gone down in history as the Boers who fought the British around 1900, as well as the perpetrators of apartheid. But what is becoming of the Afrikaners and their language in post-apartheid South Africa? The programme presents a collage of people, old and young, left and right-wing, writers and politicians, who all try to define what it means to be an Afrikaner today.
