The score in South Africa

With just five days to go before the Soccer World Cup in South Africa, 30 Minuts looks at a match between a wealthy football team and a poor one. The game highlights the social and racial divides in the country 16 years after the end of apartheid. In 1990, the world looked on in astonishment as the apartheid regime freed Nelson Mandela from prison and South Africa galloped towards reconciliation. Today, two decades later, the 2010 Soccer World Final now puts the country in the spotlight once again.

With just five days to go before the Soccer World Cup in South Africa, 30 Minuts looks at a match between a wealthy football team and a poor one. The game highlights the social and racial divides in the country 16 years after the end of apartheid.

In 1990, the world looked on in astonishment as the apartheid regime freed Nelson Mandela from prison and South Africa galloped towards reconciliation. Today, two decades later, the 2010 Soccer World Final now puts the country in the spotlight once again.

This report was filmed in Johannesburg and covers two 20-year old football players. Tshepo plays for an all-black team from Soweto. The players are free men but their future looks bleak. Brett captains a mainly white team from a well-to-do suburb. The end of apartheid has done little to narrow the social divide. The white minority has lost political power but it continues to run the economy and enjoys a high standard of living. There are four black players on Brett's team. One of them is Thulani, who represents South Africa's burgeoning middle class.

The "30 Minuts" report looks at the new South Africa through the lives of the two football players, their families and teams. The themes covered include racial tensions and resentment, black poverty and white wealth, soaring levels of crime and AIDS and the long shadow cast by apartheid. The football players' comments are accompanied by analysis from Nadine Gordimer, a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. The report ends with both players, both teams and both realities facing each other in the final soccer game.
