Free Britannia: Reggae Britannia Documentary Goes Online

February 21, 2011

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton


You may remember we mentioned this excellent new BBC documentary exploring the impact of Jamaican music on UK pop culture from the 1960s til now. Unless you were actually alive during the 60s and have suffered short-term memory loss from your lifestyle choices, in which case it was here and then here. Anyway, what we’re trying to tell you is that it has now been posted online in all its glory. The unlisted upload smells like piracy, so if you live outside the UK and can’t get it any other way, jump on this train while you still can! Watch below for great historical footage, an unseen interview with the late, great Sugar Minnott (and much more). That’s what we’ll be doing.
