Six films on British culture and identity
_ viewed from black perspectives, each made by an independent black production company. Reunion
In 1942, 300 middle-class West Indian women were recruited into the British Army: for them it was a great adventure and a chance to help the mother country. But behind the scenes all was not well. Anxious civil servants fired memos at each other and, as the recruits were shuttled back and forth across the Atlantic, there were hints of a secret British colour bar. In this funny and moving film that uses archive footage and drama re-enactments to bring to life the period, Norma, Connie,
Hermine and Esther relive the "good old days" and vividly reveal a hidden slice of British history.
