From miners in the collieries of Edwardian Yorkshire and Lancashire, soldiers joining the services in World War One, to school leavers in 1965, racial tensions on a Liverpool housing estate and partying on the streets of the Notting Hill Carnival, this is a rich and varied depiction of black British life on screen throughout the 20th century. Spanning 1901 to 1985 with films from different regions of the UK and rarely seen footage, the programme tellingly reveals the struggle with racism and prejudice over the years, while also celebrating stories of migration, community and black culture in Britain.
