Timed to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the abolition of slavery, this programme looks at the UK Black population from the earliest days of slavery in colonial plantations to abolition. Taking in locations from the Caribbean to West Africa, Gary Beadle narrates our black population's relationship and role in the changing notion of Britishness.
