England v France; Scotland v Ireland
Today's two matches represent the halfway stage of the Championship: at Twickenham thousands of French supporters must have hoped that England's resurgence against Ireland will not have continued to blight their title aspirations for the second year running; whilst at Murrayfield Scotland must have taken the field wondering just what they had to do to gain a championship point when, after great performances against France and Wales, they found themselves in isolation at the bottom of the table.

James Cameron's own series of documentary films

"As a person I feel extremely violent, extremely violent. This is not part of a congenital or inborn trait, it is the conditions under which I live. I need to argue, I need to scream: that is the position that British society has placed me in" (A Black Militant)

Britain's colonial past has come home to roost. Black people are amongst us. James Cameron set out to discover from London's West Indians what they feel about the white society they live in. Prejudice, almost wholly unconscious, seems to be driving English society towards the precipice. Perhaps a clue may lie in the way we define ourselves...
(Cameron as seen by Cutforth: pp 6-7)
