Controversial at the time of its original broadcast, this is a powerful film which explores the lives of Caribbean migrant communities living in Birmingham and the Midlands. Including interviews with Stan Crooke a railway signal man from St Kitts living in Balsall Heath and Bernice Smith a Jamaican teacher working at St James’ Primary School in Handsworth. This screening compliments the launch of the BBC’s ‘Reel History of Britain’ featuring Melvyn Bragg.
