Trade Roots

Trade Roots will probably be one of the more interesting programmes broadcast on BBC throughout the slavery season. Michael Buerk basically goes to the British institutions that have strong links to slavery. He goes to Birmingham and Manchester to see how they got their wealth from slave money. And more harrowing, he talks to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, about the church's involvement in slavery.

"The Slavery Season"--is that anything like the Dry Season?

Interesting. I must set a reminder to make sure I don't miss it.
