THE LONG SONG

Showing on BBC One in December

Three hundred years of slavery finally came to a chaotic end on the British-ruled Caribbean island in 1838. It is a shameful and rarely-acknowledged part of British colonial history. And though Abolition may have been the first step on the road to racial equality, it is a very long road and one upon which we still travel today.

But far from being a harrowing tale of violence and misery that one might expect from such a history, The Long Song is in fact a story of hope, passion and determination, full of insight and humour.
