About Angus Begg
Angus is serious about his craft. A CNN award-winning television producer, he was the first South African broadcast journalist to report from the chaos of Somalia in 1992.
He went on to cover the Rwandan genocide of '94 and South Africa's first democratic elections the same year, for which he was nominated for the national public service radio awards.
