Welcome home dear Paul Morris, Africa is in great need of many more like You who really know their African natives for new great social and economic development!

God bless Paul Morris and all our BBC great team! I have a dream of unifying of all our Africans and Europeans as one body as sisters and brothers to share their joint great intllectual properties and the immense resources! I have been experiencing our European sisters and brothers for more than two decades as they have had been servicing our African nations in Salel countries during the great famine and drought of years 1986,1987 and 1988 where our continent Africa lost millions of lifes! I saw as a volunteer working as that time in my region Sudan and Chad how thousands of European mens and women truely and volunteerly had been saving our african survivors at that hard and hash times without routes access in very bad weather, European volunteers were servicing their African sisters and brothers for more than three years successively! Really God bless their greatest souls! I think our African nations will ever be remebering those great AfroEuropean heros! Dear Paul Morris, Europeans naturaly in love with their African nations; for in all African disastors Europeans have been always in the front firelines at their Africans' service! See what have had been happening in Darfur, Blue Nile, South Kordofan and Soothern Sudan, Europeans have been the first at help! You have seen what has been happening in Somalyia, Ethyopia, Kenya and all East Africa, Europeans donating their souls servicing and saving lifes of millions!
Dear Paul Morris, do You know that the Demogratic Republic of Congo is more richer in resources than all the resources of joint all Europe and USA! Africa is a better place for the people who really know it, but only great social and economics developments are in need! Great ideas with minimum supports can make great changes in Africa! Please, advice our European plotical and financial leaders not to waiste decades waiting those unachievable demogracies in Africa! Please, advice them to come and invest, share, save and develop Africa! Why our Europeans and North Americans have been investing and developing communits' countries and failing to find ways to deal with non-demogratic Africa! May be the African continent's chance for green great technologies!

Hi Paul,
Very interesting and informative program and unlike YouTube, that takes a while to upload, this is emmediate! I should listen to radio more. For me your story came across as forthright and genuine and with a sense of 'purpose'. I think that we all have to confront some 'hurt' in our lives in whatever format it came to us. War is perhaps the most severe but there are others that also 'force' us to face our fears or live on in a wounded state. In his book 'Wild at Heart' John Eldredge comments on the dramatic scene in the movie 'Gladiator' where Maximus 'reveals' himself to Commodus... "Where does a man go to learn an answer like that-to learn his true name, a name that can never be taken from him? You have to know where you've come from; you have to have faced a series of trials that test you; you have to have taken a journey; and you have to have faced your enemy". I think we are all on a journey like that, whether it was caused by a war or the death of a close friend or a failed relationship. I think that the trauma is good in that it precipitates such a journey. We have to some extent been anaesthetized by 'civilisation'. It seems like it is only after some disaster that people stretch out a hand to help each other. Well Paul, looking forward to more interviews, perhaps when your book is published?
