BBC and the Windrush Generation


Jyoti Mehta writes from the BBC:

‘….. I’m working on a forthcoming BBC Two series, ‘Black and British: A Forgotten History’, presented by David Olusoga.  Our entire production ends with one final filming day, and that is to commemorate and celebrate the Windrush Generation, all who followed, and the families they raised here.

The details are copied below, and in higher res attached.  Please do share with your friends and contacts. We are especially looking for short contributions from people who came over from the Caribbean and their grandchildren / youth (detailed in the flyer).  We would love if some of you are able to join us.’

The PDF here invitation-2 contains a higher resolution image of the above.

Note added 31 October

Please note that as the event is over Joyti is no longer contactable at the BBC.
