MultiChoice pays tribute to Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

Dedicated tribute channel to screen four-part series about this extraordinary South African’s life & legacy.

MultiChoice and M-Net are celebrating the extraordinary life and legacy of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu with a special Carte Blanche pop-up channel on DStv. Called A Carte Blanche: Tribute to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the special tribute will be available on channel 199 on all DStv packages across Sub-Saharan Africa from 5pm Sunday 26th December until the Archbishop’s burial.

“MultiChoice is deeply saddened by the passing of our beloved Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu – an exceptional visionary and leader who spent his life in pursuit of justice and service of mankind,” says Imtiaz Patel, MultiChoice Group Executive Chairman. “As Africa’s most-loved storyteller, we want to pay tribute to this remarkable man, and we’ll be bringing his incredible story to life on our tribute channel.”

The tribute channel will feature a variety of historical documentaries about Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, filmed between the 1980s and now, former and recent Carte Blanche interviews with our beloved Arch, his friends and family, as well as brand-new Carte Blanche overview of his extraordinary legacy and the way his activism, morality and fearless pursuit of equality touched the world. The content has been collated by Carte Blanche into four parts, comprising different segments and inserts. 

Carte Blanche: A Tribute to Desmond Tutu is the third time MultiChoice and M-Net have broadcast a dedicated special events  channel. The first was for Princess Diana and the second was for former SA president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nelson Mandela.
