Five programmes this week examining the history, culture and inhabitants of the dynamic New York borough that was once a city in its own right and has played a major part in inventing America.
4: Take Me Out to the Ball Game
The Brooklyn Dodgers were more than just a baseball team - they were a Brooklyn institution. Then, in the late fifties, the unthinkable happened - the Dodgers' owner moved the team out of Brooklyn and into Los Angeles. Tim Marlow examines the effect this had on the borough with the help of Roger Kahn - author of the award-winning The Boys of Summer- and hears how the Dodgers were the first team in the major leagues to integrate, and how their black star Jackie Robinson became part of Brooklyn folklore.
