The Nelson Mandela Foundation has discovered what is probably now the first known television interview with the former freedom fighter.
It seems to have been filmed during a break at the 1956 Treason Trial which lasted four-and-a-half years. Mandela was with the last group of 28 accused in the marathon trial who were acquitted on 29 March 1961. Days later he went underground until his arrest on 5 August 1962.
