Life&Soul is developing a new TV series based on the book by Douglas Rogers “The Last Resort”. This is an account of the struggle to survive of a farming family and their beloved employees against the thuggery and land grabbing of the government in Mugabe’s Zimbabwe. The story is equal parts troubling, amusing and surreal and it cries out to be dramatised.
