' The West Indian novel has two functions,' STUART HALL , a young Jamaican critic, wrote some years ago. ' It must give us an eye to see our society, and an eye to measure ourselves in our search for identity.' Since then many English-speaking writers from the Caribbean have received serious attention in England. Some of the writers concerned, who have made their temporary home in London, discuss their literary and cultural objectives with Stuart Hall.
Their conversation takes place against the background of a newly won political identity: the first Federal Parliament of the West Indies was opened in Trinidad on April 22

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
