Peter Horrocks

Are the international media getting Africa right?

This is the question being asked by this month's Africa Debate programme, to be broadcast from Nairobi, Kenya at 1900 GMT on Friday 30 August and 1200 GMT on Sunday 1 September.

Ahead of the programme, BBC World Service director Peter Horrocks will answer your questions on Wednesday 28 August between 1400 GMT and 1500.

Do you think international media are getting Africa right? What would you change?
