Coolies – How Britain reinvented slavery – video

Watch the 60 minutes documentary here.

Combining archive footage and historical evidence the programme includes interviews with Gandhi’s great-granddaughter, Uma Dhupelia-Mesthrie, about Gandhi’s campaign to end indentured labour and David Dabydeen – author and academic – whose great-grandfather was an indentured labourer in British Guyana.
