4. Reggae Britannia (2011)

One of the many great things about this BBC-produced film–besides concentrating heaps of classic footage into one pleasurably-consumed dish–is the fact that by talking about both white and black UK music scenes in the same film, it avoids the pseudo-anthropological feel of many docs made in the first world about Caribbean culture. And, more importantly, it highlights the impact West Indian music has had on the world at large.
