  The material contained on the DVD relates to the years of conflict between the Basotholand Congress Party (BCP) and the Basotho National Party (BNP) in Lesotho during the years of the BNP led regime of Chief Leabua Jonathan from 1970-1986.  
  The collection also gives an account of the history of the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC), particularly the role of Potlako Leballo.  
   
  Bernard Leeman is an Irish activist who served in both the First Lesotho Liberation Army (LLA) and the pre-1986 Azanian People's Liberation Army (APLA). He worked in various capacities, including as the BCP's acting representative in London, as the PAC education secretary, founder of the University of Azania and co-editor of The Africanist. For three months in 1977 he worked undercover as a Major in the Lesotho Paramilitary Force. In 1978 he financed the invasion of Lesotho and in 1985 played a major role in the Lekhanya coup in 1986.
