Special Report Transcript Episode 53, Section 3, Time 12:47

Steve Biko was a medical student and under ordinary circumstances he would today have been a practicing doctor. His legacy to South African medicine has to be thoroughgoing correction of those issues in this story that might conceivably ever allow it to happen again. // Peter, thank you very much and I’d like to add my voice to yours in apologising to Mrs. Biko and her family. Although I’m very proud to be a doctor I can never listen to or read the chronology of Steve Biko’s death without feeling a deep sense of shame.

Notes: Dr Wendy Orr (Truth Commissioner)
