Carbon Copy + Black Feet in the Snow
Two contrasting dramas from the mid-70s, about the struggles faced by Caribbean settlers in the UK.
Against the Crowd
Dir Piers Haggard
With Don Warrington, Nadia Cattouse, Cleo Sylvestre, Judy Campbell
In Howard Schuman’s contribution to the Against the Crowd series, Jamaican Albert Sharpe II (Warrington) is no longer at ease with the cultured white family who have virtually adopted him.
+ Black Feet in the Snow
Dir Brian Skilton
With Shango Baku
Written and narrated by Jamal Ali, this impressionistic, innovative drama shows how Britain – ‘The Promised Land’ – offered only frustration and rejection to Caribbean settlers in the 1950s.
