When "Yizo Yizo" premiered on South African television in 1999, it created a sensation with its gritty, realistic portrait of life in a Soweto school. The new series, premiering in April in South Africa, will be shown for the first time here. In it, the kids are grown up, out of school, and on their own in Johannesburg.
