Shaka Zulu (TV Mini-Series 1986– ) Poster

(1986– )


This has been the most repeatedly screened mini-series ever shown on television in the United States. By 1992, over 350 million viewers had seen it. The series dislodged The Hunters (1957) and The Gods Must Be Crazy (1980) and its sequels as the prime shaper of American perceptions of "tribal" history in southern Africa. The series even achieved cult status. The UK actors who worked on the project were nearly blacklisted by the UN.
Based on Joshua Sinclairs novel "Shaka Zulu", which is based on Zulu oral tradition.
