Film – The Colony

Directed by Philip Donnellan and broadcast on the BBC, The Colony (1964) was filmed in Birmingham, giving a voice to working-class settlers from the Caribbean. A railwayman from Saint Kitts, a bus conductor from Jamaica, a family of singers from Trinidad and a nurse from Barbados articulate their experiences of Britain. With thanks to the BFI National TV Archive.
