www.itvs.org Premiering January 19, 2012 on PBS (check local listings). Watch "The Bottom Line" - the fourth episode of "Have You Heard From Johannesburg" Boycotts and divestment campaigns bring the anti-apartheid movement into the lives and communities of people around the world, helping everyday people understand and challenge Western economic support for apartheid. Faced with attacks at home and growing chaos in South Africa, international companies pull out in a mass exodus, causing a financial crisis in the now-isolated South Africa. This five-part series from producer/director Connie Field chronicles the history of the global anti-apartheid movement that took on South Africa's entrenched apartheid regime and its international supporters who considered South Africa an ally in the Cold War.
