General
London Line was a film series of magazine programmes made for television. It was initially produced in two versions, ‘Old Commonwealth’ for countries such as Canada and Australia and ‘New Commonwealth’ for countries in Africa and the Caribbean which had recently joined the Commonwealth. Both versions followed a similar presenter-led format mixing interviews and regular live music performances. The ‘New Commonwealth’ version featured ‘African Correspondents Reporting From London’ on a wide range of cultural, political and scientific issues as experienced by Africans living in Britain.
