Two posts in one day is unprecedented, I think, but I thought that members of this community might be interested in a series that will be airing on BBC2 in the UK starting at 9 PM on Thursday, 6 October. It’s called “Mixed Race Britannia” and it will be hosted by George Alagiah, who is Sri Lankan-British and in a mixed-race marriage.

Persons outside the UK may be able to view the series through the BBC iPlayer using a browser that can feign a UK location. I don't, of course, suggest that anyone attempt this. *hands in pockets, whistling*
