Coolies: How Britain Re-invented Slavery BBC 4 2005 08 11 Divx60m
The slave trade was officially abolished throughout the British Empire in 1807 and all slaves were freed in British jurisdictions in 1838. This documentary reveals one of Britain's darkest secrets: a form of slavery that continued well into the 20th century - the story of Indian indentured labor.
Coolies: How Britain Reinvented Slavery traces family stories through epic voyages across South America, the South Pacific and Africa, as descendants investigate their past and trace the last surviving witnesses.
