Allan Little pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as he prepares to stand down after five years as president. Mandela trained as a lawyer and later became known as the `black pimpernel' throughout his years on the run. A show trial led to 27 years in prison on Robben Island. Fellow prisoners and colleagues talk about those years and his refusal to depart from his vision of a multi-racial ideal. / Allan Little pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as he prepares to stand down after five years as president.
