Celebration of Mixed or Multi-Racial Identities

New BBC Landmark Series

The BBC is planning a landmark three-part series, to be presented by BBC newsreader and presenter George Alagiah, which is intended to be a celebration of mixed or multi-racial identities.

Opportunity to share experiences

The programme, to be broadcast next year, would like to speak to and hear from a host of families and individuals across Britain . We would like to hear about the range of experiences of growing up in Britain and coming from a mixed background.  The timespan of the programme  ranges from 1900 to the present day, so we’re looking at the very early settlers who came to the port cities of Liverpool, Manchester, London and Cardiff to families who might have grown up in the 60’s and 70’s. We want families from the cities as well as from the countryside so that we can reflect every experience.

Archives to Tell Stories

These programmes are set to be a chronicle, a social history, of Britain through the eyes of the people we meet across the series.  If you have a story you would be interested in sharing, we would be happy to have an initial conversation. We are also very keen to use home movies, family photographs and newspaper articles to tell the stories.
