We were delighted that the two-part BBC programme, Britain's Forgotten Slave-owners won the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) TV award for 2016 in the ‘Specialist factual’ category (awarded 8 May 2016).

The first of two episodes, presented by David Olusoga, was broadcast at 9.00pm on Wednesday 15th July 2015 on BBC2, the second a week later. For more information see the BBC website page and BBC programme page.
