Britain's forgotten slave-owners: BBC TV broadcast

Britain's Forgotten Slave-owners, a two-part BBC programme based on LBS and presented by David Olusoga, was originally broadcast in July 2015. For more information about the programme, see the BBC website page and BBC programme page.

We were delighted that the programme won the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) TV award for 2016 in the ‘Specialist factual’ category (awarded 8 May 2016).
