First fact: Mike Campbell purchased the 3,000-acre farm during Ian Smith's regime in 1974. Second fact: Mike Campbell purchased the 3,000-acre farm in 1999, from himself! Not in 1980 but 1999 and all very legitimate if it was not for the clear intention to dupe, mislead, hide the truth, give the illusion that the farm was not bought along all the others when the South African army captain arrived in Zimbabwe in 1974.

Screening of "Mugabe and the White African" is more than just about a "farming" family in Zimbabwe. I doubt very much if your customers would still sympathise with this family, Mike Campbell and his son-in-law, Ben Freeth after watching them online. Mike Campbell and Ben Freeth show they real colours in their own series on youtube particularly the "interview" of Mike Campbell where he tells it like he sees it "if they want to eat they need to have white farmers": Zimbabwe White farmers (Pt 4&5) The land was grabbed by Mike Campbell, a South African army captain, who came to Zimbabwe from South Africa in 1974, in the middle of the guerrilla war against the black majority, just four years before the infamous white supremacist Ian Smith unilaterally yielded to international pressure to end white minority rule. Original Rhodesian white farmers have now all left or have complied with the land reform, Mike Campbell won't. Ben Freeth portrays himself as a victim of racial attacks but do not say where he and his family really comes from. Ben Freeth is the son of a British Empire military officer, they are men from the past, from another century, when people like Ben and his father came straight from the British establishment to rule the world.
