This drama was the first feature-length fiction film directed by a Black film-maker in Britain and is now recognised as one of the key black British films of all time. It features scenes filmed in Portobello Road and an LT C stock train is crossing the bridge over the market in one. There is also an aerial view of a Class 50-hauled express leaving London, possibly filmed from Trellick Tower, North Kensington.
