FRONTLINE presents the story of the man behind the myth, probing Mandela's character, leadership and life's method through intimate recollections with friends, political allies, adversaries, and his fellow prisoners and jailers on Robben Island, where Mandela spent 18 of his 27 prison years. This biography is filled with insights from Mandela's noble upbringing in the rural Transkei where his values and attitudes were shaped by tradition and royal prerogative - to old colleagues' anecdotes about his self-discipline, guarded privacy and quite early sense of his own historic destiny. The program also examines Mandela's electric relationship with Winnie Madikizela Mandela and chronicles Mandela's negotiations with the increasingly embattled white rulers of South Africa.
