Exodus - Uganda

Asians face expulsion from Amin's Uganda - Jonathan Dimbleby reports.

1972 26 mins


Uganda, 1972: 80,000 people of South Asian origin face an ultimatum - leave or face jail. This issue of ITV's This Week was made bang in the middle of the crisis, with President Amin's order a month old with two months remaining. Reporter Jonathan Dimblebly explains the background to UK viewers and gets views on the street from both Asians and Africans. This is scintillating current affairs TV, and an important historical record.
