WEEKLY NEWS ROUNDUP… New mini-series on CBC-TV deals with child soldier issues…

The British/Canadian/South African co-production is based on the 2002 Diamond, by Canadian journalist Matthew Hart.  A brief synopsis:

Directed by Andy Wilson, Diamonds weaves together the complex tales of the senator (Davis), the diamond baron (Purefoy), his estranged father (Jacobi), his fiancé (Louise Rose), an orphan/child soldier (Mbongeni Nhlapo) and two ambitious geologists (played by Newfoundland’s Joanne Kelly and Nova Scotia native Stephen McHattie).

The first two-hour instalment of Diamonds airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on CBC-TV. The second part runs April 12.
