The right to access archives is crucial to protecting the right to access to information. South Africa has walked a long since 1994, with the post early democracy euphoria that surrounded the country. Access to archives has been increasingly more difficult and this directly impacts the ongoing work of truth and reconciliation. Episode 2 is a conversation between Nobukhosi Zulu and Dr. Geraldine Frieslaar of SAHA on the history of archives and how this has developed over the years.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa is hailed internationally as having been nothing short of a miracle in ensuring peace in South Africa, through truth collection which would hopefully foster peace. However there have been those who have accused the TRC of being a failed attempt and a betrayal of the struggle. In particular, the failure of the governement to prosecute individuals for apartheid era crimes has caused continued frustration and disatisfaction with the entire process.
