In post-apartheid South Africa, whites earn an average of $6,300 each year, while blacks bring home just $950. Some black citizens believe they were financially better off during apartheid. This Wide Angle documentary examines economic empowerment programs designed to help transfer more of the nation's wealth and opportunity to its black majority. Focusing on Uthingo, the consortium of black-empowerment companies that manages the national lottery, the program shows how the group has created thousands of new jobs for black South Africans-while broad social change, including black ownership and participation in other industries, is slow in coming. In addition, Susan Rice discusses black economic empowerment with anchor Mishal Husain. (57 minutes).

After the Great Fire of 1666, there were carefully-conceived and well-designed plans for the rebuilding of London which-in a foreshadowing of modern times-came to nought as private interest won out over public policy. This program shows Christopher Wren's original design for St. Paul's Cathedral (which was vetoed by a building committee that was sure it knew more about design than Wren) and the church itself; explains the effect of the fire and the population shift westward; shows Dr. Johnson's house and his definition of the civilized life; and describes the institution of the club and analyzes the values of Beau Brummel. The principal illustrations: Cardinal's Wharf in Bankside, St. Paul's Cathedral, Dr. Johnson's House in Gough Square, Temple Bar, George Inn in Southwark, Boodle's Club, Carleton House Terrace, Regent Street, Regents Park, Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch, Inner Temple. (20 minutes).
