The British Film Institute has debunked the long-standing fact by uncovering footage of the 1962 British play adaptation You In Your Small Corner. In the movie, a young man moves from Jamaica to Brixton to study at Cambridge, and falls in love with a White woman.
Upon uncovering the footage, BFI’s creative director Heather Stewart reiterated its place in history:
“This groundbreaking TV play is such an important rediscovery. A document of British social history, it demonstrates the role of progressive television drama as a reflection of our society and underlines the vital work of the BFI National Archive as the guardian of our national memory. Fifty years on, diverse on-screen representation is still an urgent issue and we must continue as an industry to effect much-needed change.”
