Liverpool 8 1972

27 mins United Kingdom

Following unrest on the Falkner housing estate in Liverpool, This Week investigates incidents of racially-motivated violence and tension between communities. Interviews with local residents contain strong language as they relate encounters with skinheads, police discrimination and social deprivation. The events can be seen as a prelude to the Toxteth riots which took place nearly a decade later.
