Sugar Man favourite for documentary Oscar

Help

Searching for Sugar Man, a film chronicling the life of the American musician Rodriguez, is seen by many Oscars odds makers as the favourite to win the best documentary feature award, having already won in the same category at the Baftas.

Although Rodriguez had a huge following in apartheid-era South Africa, few knew of his music in his native US.

Now that has all changed with the film's success and Oscar nomination.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT
