Plain Tales from the Commonwealth

on BBC Radio 4 FM

New series 1/4. My Land Is Kenya. As country after country gained independence from Britain after 1947, thousands of Britons returned home. But not all. Aidan Hartley finds out what happened to those who stayed on in the newly independent countries. He starts with the white farmers of Kenya who. in colonial days, were given the prime agricultural land but were moved to less fertile ground after independence. He asks why they stayed and whether they have become true Kenyans or if they still look to Britain for their identity. Producer Jolyon Jenkins
