I got the catalog from the World Bank of the videos they have available.
They have hundreds of documentaries as well as raw footage available at low
prices.  In looking through the catalog, I saw three videos on internet
development in Africa that looked interesting.  So I called them, and sent
them a check and a week or two later I got the videos.  There is some common


footage in them and getting all three is a bit redundant, but they are not
expensive and are good additions to my collection of African videos.  They
were all made in 1996, but seem pretty current and still relevant to me.
Here is the synopsis given in the Bank's catalog.  As you see, one video
covers all of Africa - well 5-6 countries, and the other two focus on
Ethiopia and Mozambique.
