Frantz Fanon : Black Skin, White Mask This documentary - mixing dramatic reconstruction, archive footage and first-hand testimony - analyses racism in the colonial and post-colonial worlds through the life of Frantz Fanon , one of the century's major black intellectuals.
Fanon was a French citizen who enlisted in the fight against the Nazis. But his roots - the Caribbean island of Martinique - meant he was a figure feared and suspected in post-war
France. His worked as a psychiatrist in Algeria, but resigned in 1956 after becoming an outspoken critic of French policy there. He was expelled and died before Algeria secured independence, but his legacy lives on in the books Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth.
Colin Salmon plays Fanon in flashback while Fanon's son, Oliver, is amongthe interviewees casting light upon a man Jean-Paul Sartre regarded as a spokesman forthe developing world. Director Isaac Julien ; Producer Mark Nash

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
