Who's catering for the millions of fans outside Ellis Park Stadium? Who's selling football strips in Nigeria's bustling Lagos market? How do Kenyans watch the matches in Kibera, Nairobi's notorious slum? Why can't women compete, or referee, in the tournament? And are you ever too old to play the beautiful game?

tve's African Football Shorts reveal some of the human stories that lie behind the great footballing drama of the World Cup - the hopes, dreams, dilemmas and disappointments of African players, spectators, workers and plain hangers on -- seen from a uniquely African perspective.

Watch on BBC World News Everyday 05.45 and 19.45 BST, except Fridays. BBC World News broadcast times vary around the world. For details of transmissions in your region, check the BBC World News website.

African Football Shorts were filmed by Communicating for Change (CFC) Nigeria; OnScreen Productions, Kenya; Media for Development Trust (MFD), Zimbabwe; and Rishile Bosele Communications (RBC), South Africa, and by Themartist Productions, Slum Dwellers International, South Africa.

The series is part of tve's 'Five Years to Go' project on the MDGs in sub-Saharan Africa, and is generously supported by the European Commission, Oxfam Novib, UNFPA and UN-HABITAT.
