Sir Trevor Phillips re-visits the stories of the Windrush generations, seventy five years after the arrival of the first group of Caribbean migrants to Britain in 1948. He explores both the adventurous spirit of those early passengers and the lives of their young descendants and how they perceive their cultural belonging today. Sir Trevor, together with his brother Mike Phillips, originally interviewed many of the Windrush families in 1998 to tell the story of the late twentieth century through the eyes of the outsiders who became insiders. Continuing these conversations, Sir Trevor considers the ongoing impact of Windrush, and evolving perspectives of race and identity for black Britons.
