During a period of horrific upheaval surrounding the Rwandan genocide, Kate Ashby (Michaela Coel) was rescued from a mass grave and adopted by a world-class British prosecutor in international law. Two decades later, she now works as a legal investigator in the chambers of Michael Ennis (John Goodman). As Kate's mother takes on a case prosecuting an African militia leader who fought to end the genocide, Kate and Michael are pulled into a journey that will upend their lives forever, uncovering a shared and terrifying past.

Might have been good - Black Earth Rising review by Ken

Spoiler Alert
05/11/2019

Watched the first 15 minutes of the first episode but already the foul language was coming through. Sent it straight back.

When will producers realise that we don't all want to hear it and that it's not necessary in order to tell a story? It's just lazy script writing. If you watch it, be prepared for lots of "F" words.
