Geldof in Africa: A Terrible Beauty (2005)

Episode 6
Only available in Canada, United States

Twenty years later, Bob Geldof returns to Ethiopia, the land that inspired Band Aid and Live Aid - a country that is now growing and thriving in many ways. Where once he saw a barren landscape filled with devastation and starvation now grows green fields and a people returning to a new kind of prosperity. Ethiopia does not disappoint as Geldof explores its rich and vibrant history that is still alive today. He sees such sites as a 12th Century cathedral carved into stone and visits the Mursi tribe who still live much the same way as their ancestors did. Bustling cities of Addis Ababa and Harar show the affluence and adaptability of the growing Ethiopian economy. This is an episode filled with hope, not just for Ethiopia but for all of Africa as well.

Absolutely well told reality of the mass destruction of human mind tells of the poor and the zeroes of children in the sands of mercy
Is it that one comes to live in this matter of disbelief or karmic reasoning beneath the grounds of walking the path of evil..
