On July 18th 2018 Nelson Mandela would have been 100 years old. On this occasion we are excited to present you our selection of programes, which deal with great personalities. 

Nelson Mandela - A Life for Freedom

1 x 52 min. | HD

With racial segregation becoming more and more inflexible, he got involved with the resistance and in 1964 was sentenced to life imprisonment. Mandela spent the next 27 years in jail before he was finally released in February 1990: The beginning of a triumphant return culminating in the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize and, a year later, the South African presidency. This documentary gives us a portrait of a man, who, more than any other, has become a shining light in the Dark Continent and, ultimately, a modern PR phenomenon.



ORF-Enterprise also offers further documentaries, which portrait remarkable personalities of our history.


Gandhi: Fighting Without Weapons

1 x 48 min. | HD

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, known as "Mahatma," was assassinated by a Hindu fanatic 70 years ago, on 30th January 1948. Today, Gandhi is considered the embodiment of non violent resistance. His great words have also taken hold in the Western World: "Ahimsa"- non violence, "Satygraha" - insistence on truth, "Swaraj" - self governance. Gandhi was and remained a Hindu, but engaged intensively with other religions.


Mother Teresa – Saint of Darkness

1 x 45/52 min. | HD

Mother Teresa – who was she really? These intimate confessions show the moral icon of the 20th century in a different light. The woman who achieved worldwide recognition for her life among the beggars and dying in the slums of Calcutta often felt lonely and empty inside. She described these experiences as a state of “darkness”, which she herself referred to as a remoteness from God. Her life story is unsettling and provocative in equal measure.
