Jeremy Thorpe visits Salisbury, Rhodesia

Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe makes an unexpected visit to Salisbury, Rhodesia (now Harare, Zimbabwe) and spends an hour with Ian Smith Prime Minister of the UDI regime. He also meets the leaders of the African National Congress and regional leaders in Zambia, including President Kenneth Kaunda. This is against the background of growing guerrilla activity in the country and the continuing search for a constitutional settlement.
