Scope and content

Director: Ina de la Rey: South Africa, 1988.
Producer: Afrikanervolkswag
This film about the 1938 centenary celebrations of the Great Trek is made up entirely of archival film and includes commentary by Totius. The celebrations started with a commemorative trek in which ten ox wagons travelled from Cape Town via Stellenbosch, Riversdale, Slagtersnek, Bloemfontein, the Drakensberg, Pietermaritzburg, Potchefstroom and the Witwatersrand to Pretoria. In Pretoria the cornerstone of the Voortrekker monument was laid and the film ends with the inauguration of the monument eleven years later.
