Broadcaster Daniel Farson investigates conflicting points of view about interracial marriages in late 1950s Britain. His interviewees include a contented Jamaican/English couple (seen in this extract) and reactionary parliamentary candidate James Wentworth Day, who expresses his deeply racist opposition.

In an ambivalent conclusion, Farson reveals that he is still undecided about this ‘controversial’ subject.
