BBC Four: Martin Luther King and the March on Washington to be repeated

This excellent documentary is being repeated on Wednesday 6 November. If you missed the previous broadcast, do your best to see it this time round. Some great insights into the Black Civil Rights movement and its leaders, and the story behind Dr King’s historic ‘I Have A Dream’ speech.  Well worth the effort to see it.
