Suffolk RDC turn down housing for migrants 1965

2 mins United Kingdom

Dick Graham for Anglia TV tackles a topical issue head-on putting forward the provocative question ‘what is wrong with coloured immigrants?’ to Mildenhall District Councillors who have concerns about the number of migrant workers occupying new council housing. The Councillors hold the opinion that cultural differences among residents may be a barrier to successful social integration. The film highlights that acceptability of language terms is very time-specific.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
