Again, the second episode of this three part series was outstanding. I love this series - it is excellent. I am - yet again! - banging the drum for this series and recommending it highly to anyone who has an interest in history, British history, or social history.

Cut and pasted from the BBC website:

Mixed Britannia is a new three-part series for BBC2. George Alagiah explores the often untold stories of Britain's mixed-race communities. In this three-part series George Alagiah explores the remarkable and untold story of Britain's mixed-race community and examines through the decades how mixed race has become one of the country's fastest growing ethnic groups.

The series concludes next Thursday where it will cover the years 1965 to the present day. In the Seventies a new wave of immigration was settling in Britain, the National Front was on the march and mixed-race families faced violence on the street. George learns about the debates surrounding mixed race adoption and hears about a 21st story love-story as the couple struggle to overcome the cultural prejudice from the community.
