It follows a small circle of Jamaicans, most of whom came to London at the start of WWII (1939), to fight for their Queen and country. They felt strongly that they were British and expected to be treated as such when they got to the UK. The reality was rather different due to the colour of their skin. Truly a wonderful television show.
