Google William Cuffay and the Chartist movement, it may allay your fear of the PC crowd.

Another gem of a tv series from Spud17's new stash.

 

Die Protokollantin (The Typist)

 

Solid crime drama about a woman who sits in on police interrogations and types up transcripts, while

plotting her own personal agenda. 5 episodes with nice big embedded subs.

Possibly accurate, black people were living and working in London during the period.

amazes me posters on here PERSISTANTLY  insist they arnt racist,  yet  CONSTANTLY spend time slating black people/actors  in period dramas/shows, rather than discussing more pertinant  points about the plot acting direction or whatever,  that would or could actually be interesting as opposed to moaning about the colour of an actors skin. which effectively is what they are doing  AND THATS RACIST ,,  ,, unfortunatly ignorant biggoted is as ignorant biggoted does.

How is history being changed? William Cuffay was a black man who led protests against the government during Victoria's life. I am sure you will be shocked to find out that the black lady in the posts above is actually Victoria's goddaughter.

Cuffey wasn't exactly anti-trade union, according to Google, but he was anti the prevailing trade union movement which had its roots in utopian socialist philosophy. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Metropolitan Tailor's Charter Association, you could call it a trade union of tailors, and became involved in the Chartist movement (a working class political movement seeking democratic rights for working class people) after he was sacked for participating in a tailor's strike.
At least, according to Google. I wasn't there at the time.....

Watched "Can you ever forgive me" the other night and thought it very average, and IMO that's being kind.......nothing to recommend it and as for Richard E Grant being nominated, well there must be a dearth of those around!
