JOHANNESBURG - On Sunday night, eNCA brings you one of apartheid’s untold stories.

The Vula Connection is the story of Tim Jenkin.

He turned against his own government, escaped from prison, and went into exile, where he set up a secret communications system.

He used it to pass messages to the imprisoned Nelson Mandela, and ultimately helped the ANC topple apartheid.

But with democracy in sight, Operation Vula was bust.

The documentary premieres at 8pm on Sunday, with repeats throughout the week.
