Stories from the Niger Delta -- "PH Stories" on AIT at 9pm

‘PH Stories’ documents Funmi’s journey as she talks to locals, artists, writers, celebrities and politicians, exploring stories in and around Port Harcourt, the garden city and business capital of the Niger Delta. PH Stories will air this Saturday March 10th on AIT and AIT International at 9pm

In search of the stories and voices of the Niger Delta, Funmi and the crew travelled to Port Harcourt, following the trail of Kaine Agary's award winning novel ‘Yellow Yellow’. A short boat ride from Port Harcourt brings Funmi to the beautiful island of Bonny, rich in history and natural beauty and home to Nigeria’s Liquid Natural Gas project. Bonny is also home to Monkey Village, where you’ll find Funmi engaging a melee of interesting individuals in her signature down to earth and frank style, eliciting openness and honesty from people on the fringes of society--mixed race descendants of foreign oil workers and Nigerian women, militants, armed robbers and drug dealers. Finally, Rivers State Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi drives Funmi and her crew around the city, visiting various innovative government projects and discussing issues of poverty, job creation, power generation and true federalism.

Tune in to PH Stories on AIT & AIT International Sunday March 10th, 2012 at 9pm

Is it possible to view this on youtube? It will be good for those of us that missed the program to have a chance to view it online.

Your documentary "Port Harcourt Stories" so much reflected my current understanding of the state of affairs in my beloved garden city. It definitely starkly contrasts with what the politicals that be want us to believe. However, what they see from their fortified homes and excessively sheltered lives is quite different from the reality of ordinary indigenes like me who feel we will never be able to return because the flavour is lost.

I have been looking for the documentary online to share with folks I told about it and it has simply disappeared. Please advice on how to obtain.
