On the border

The world is horrified at the devastation caused by anti personnel mines in many countries. At the same time while many things have been reported about Zimbabwe recently, few people know about the legacy of minefields that were planted by Rhodesian troops in the late 1970s - except of course the people who live in or adjacent to this mine field. Also less well known are the efforts being made to rid Zimbabwe of this menace. This film portrays the work of Zimbabweans and men of other nationalities who enter the minefields to open up land and make Zimbabwe's borders safer. Yet it could well be true that in Zimbabwe, as in other countries where anti personnel mines were used in warfare, the last victim has not yet been born.
