Slavery - The Making Of

By Peter Jukes

A look behind the scenes of a fictional creative process to see what really goes on when an illustrious group of actors and a radio producer grapple with the problem of how to re-enact stories about the slave trade? How can you reconstruct scenes of such suffering and torment? The result is a funny, doomed attempt to make an improvised drama-documentary about slavery.

From an idea by Lenny Henry.
