Description
A Question of Race. Part 3: Eruptions in the Melting Pot. A documentary presented by John Thompson. The programme examines on what is being said and done about race relations in Britain. Right-wing groups such as the National Front are discussed, including the tactics and literature used to promote it and recruit young members.
