Joseph Fiennes in Angola
Joseph Fiennes in Angola
Three special reports exclusively for Breakfast
Angola has experienced three decades of civil war - and one year of peace.

So, how are the people who live there trying to re-build their lives?

The actor Joseph Fiennes has been travelling through Angola, for the charity Christian Aid.

  • This week, he filed three reports from Angola, exclusively for Breakfast. You can watch them all by clicking on the links below.

  • Immediately after Monday's programme, we put some of your e-mails to Joseph Fiennes in a special interactive forum. You can watch that by clicking on the story on the right-hand side of this page


    Monday May 12: Poverty

    At the start of Christian Aid week, Joseph Fiennes set out to discover why Angola is so rich in natural resources, but remains under the yoke of poverty.

    In the country's capital, Luanda, he found amazing wealth and poverty, side by side.



    Tuesday May 13: War veterans

    In his second report, Joseph Fiennes went to meet some of the UNITA rebels who have been fighting in Angola's civil war for the past 27 years.

    They have now swapped their guns for civilian life - but integrating back into society is not proving to be easy.



    Wednesday May 14: the Aids time-bomb

    Soldiers returning from the civil war have brought with them a horrific legacy: HIV and Aids.

    Joseph spoke to two widows who are learning to live with HIV - and dropped in on a theatre in education session which aims to protect the next generation from Aids.
