Play Your Part back on the small screen

5 March 2012

The 13-episode television series promoting Brand South Africa's Play Your Part campaign, which features inspirational stories of ordinary citizens working to improve their communities, is back by popular demand on SABC 1 at 6pm on Tuesdays, starting on 6 March.

Brand South Africa travelled the length and breadth of the country asking ordinary South Africans how they are playing their part in their communities, in the process uncovering a range of inspirational stories to share with the nation.

"There are a number of opportunities, big and small, where each and every one of us can make a positive difference in the communities in which we live and operate," Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola said of show.

The TV series is aimed at lifting the spirits, and to "inspire all South Africans with examples of how their fellow citizens are creating a South Africa we can all be proud of".

A new generation of pioneers

The first episode profiles "a new generation of pioneers who, despite adversity, are charting new paths and flying the South African flag high," says Brand South Africa.

These include Nelisiwe Xaba, who explores contemporary issues and provokes dialogue through choreography and dance; David Tlale, who from one sewing machine has built a clothing brand that has graced the fashion capitals of the world; and 20-year-old racing driver Vicki Kemp, who has been on the tracks since she was 10.

Play Your Part is a social movement created by the Brand South Africa to inspire, empower and celebrate active citizenship.
