I posted in 2010 about Lost Kingdoms of Africa, a BBC(4) series, presented by art historian Gus Casely-Hayford, about pre-colonial centres of civilisation in Africa. A new series starts tomorrow evening, repeated late at night and on Thursday night. (I love BBC4's system of repeating things hours and then days later, now that digital switchover makes it harder to watch one while recording another.)

Thanks for the rec! Netflix has season 1 on DVD, so I'll be able to enjoy it soon as well!

Turnabout is fair play: I loved historian Henry "Skip" Gates's 6-part series called Wonders of the African World. It was produced for the US's public broadcasting system in 1999 and delightfully the web site is still live! There's a lot of connecting the dots between Africa and the United States.
