This Week investigates how racial tensions in Islington are being stoked by social pressures, and what residents are doing to improve the area.

Current affairs 1970 27 mins


Grassroots action proves effective in this edition of This Week, as Islington residents fight the council for better housing and facilities for their children. Racial tensions are high in the area and frank interviews with local inhabitants reveal conflicting attitudes to growing integration, while concerns about gentrification and poverty in London give the programme contemporary relevance.
