Perhaps his greatest journalistic achievement was South Africa Now, a weekly television news magazine about South Africa at a most critical moment in its history, which ran on public television in the US and in more than thirty foreign countries from 1988-91. When Nelson Mandela toured the US after his release from prison, Danny was the only American documentary filmmaker Mandela trusted to travel with him and to film the tour.
