Series 1: 2. Blame



The story of the aftermath of the New Cross fire and the run up to the Black People’s Day of Action. As news spread about the fire at 439 New Cross Road, the scale of the tragedy overwhelmed the local community. Amid uncertainty about whether the fire had been caused by a racist firebomb attack, anger mounted at the police investigation and the seeming indifference of the press and the government to the loss of so many black lives. The Black People’s Day of Action, a mass demonstration, was organised to bring the tragedy to the attention of the nation.
