In this updated edition of his acclaimed and award-winning study, Stephen Bourne takes a personal look at the history of black people in popular British film and television. He documents, from original research and interviews, the experiences and representations which have been ignored in previous media books about people of African descent. There are chapters about Paul Robeson, Newton I. Aduaka, soap operas and much more - as well as several useful appendices and suggestions for further reading. Stephen Bourne is one of Britain's leading authorities on black history. His other books include Aunt Esther's Story and A Ship and a Prayer. He has organized a number of programmes for the National Film Theatre, including a centenary tribute to Paul Robeson. For the BBc's 1998 Windrush season, he researched and scripted Radio 2's Their Long Voyage Home, Stephen has received two awards from the Commission for Racial Equality and, for the first edition of this book, was shortlisted for The Voice Black Community Award for Literature.
